JC Copeland's Surrogate Family

I saw this article in the Daily Reveille and thought it should be posted. Very heart-warming read.

quote:

There’s no question that LSU fullback J.C. Copeland’s favorite pastime involves inflicting pain. The 6-foot, 270-pound behemoth has been likened to a freight train or an 18-wheeler rumbling down the field on the way to delivering some of the most vicious hits in the country. Despite his frightening reputation, 10-year-old Macy Jeter sees only one thing in the fullback — a jungle gym.

Yes but it left me wondering where he was during the week ... always rotating at coaches houses except for the weekend? I know it doesn't matter but just saying it left me wondering.

Hope he's in contact with his mom and that there is some kind of a relationship.

And props to the family for taking him in. Truly awesome.

Great read and story. Did not realize any of that about Copeland.

Only beef with the story.

It's like The Blindside, only Michael tells Ole Miss to frick off. Then he tells the Thuys that the family is for LSU now.

I met his mom before the BCSNCG in 2012. She was very normal and having a good time.
