BATON ROUGE - For the second-straight year, Flores MBA student and LSU long snapper Blake Ferguson will serve as the chair of the Southeastern Conference Football Leadership Council, the league office announced Thursday.

Ferguson, who is currently pursuing a master’s degree in business administration after graduating in the spring of 2018 with a degree in marketing, recently finished his first term as the chair of the football leadership council.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be named the Chair of the SEC Football Leadership Council for the second year,” said Blake Ferguson. “I am excited to begin working with the new members of the committee and continue to work hard to create a positive experience for all student-athletes in the Southeastern Conference. This conference is one that has been at the forefront of allowing student-athletes to express their opinions openly and I am happy to be a part of that.”

The Football Leadership Council is one of three components of the SEC Student-Athlete Leadership Council. The other two parts are the Men's and Women's Basketball Leadership Councils. Student-Athlete Leadership Councils provide student-athletes with additional opportunities to engage with campus leaders and conference office staff. The councils serve as a conduit of communication to the conference office on issues related to the student-athlete experience and student-athlete wellness.

Ferguson, from Buford, GA, recently completed his third season as LSU’s long snapper. He’s been named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll three times as well as being named a first-team All-America by Phil Steele for 2018.
