Louisiana Ragin' Cajun running back Elijah McGuire has put together an impressive true freshmen season. Leading the NCAA in average yards per carry at 8.9, the Houma native has been recognized for his outstanding play.

The Sun Belt Conference freshmen of the year can add another accolade to his accomplishments. Earlier today, McGuire was named to the 2013 247Sports True Freshman All-American second team.

In addition to being the only Sun Belt Conference representative, McGuire is one of only three players from a non-AQ conference to make the cut.
