2016 Freshman SEC Academic Honor Roll
McElwain was a pleasant surprise for the Commodore offense after arriving on campus the first day of preseason camp... He quickly moved into a key role as the team's top fullback, playing all 13 games as a punishing blocker and quality receiver out of the backfield... McElwain's strong lead blocks helped the offense to tremendous success inside the opponent's 20-yard line where the Commodore converted 43 of 46 red zone possessions into points... While McElwain had just one rush attempt on the year, he caught six passes for 35 yards, including important touchdowns in conference wins against Ole Miss and Tennessee.
