Ryan Clark will be awesome. He is a great ambassador for LSU too. He is proof that if you work hard and are persistent you can make it. I want to say he was either a late round pick or a free agent when he originally came into the NFL.
I think there were some bad years, but he was a bright spot
What are you talking about? I am not talking about when he was at LSU. I am talking about when he entered the NFL. He wasn't a guy that was highly sought by NFL teams coming out of college. He was signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Giants coming out of college and was on the practice squad his first year. The guy worked hard and paid his dues and ended up being a standout pro-bowl caliber player.
It's hard to believe it's already been since '02 when he was a senior. Very interesting also with kids leaving early that he stayed for the full term, earned a free degree in Public Relations and now has the opportunity to continue one day in broadcasting.
Its something that other student athletes leaving early should realize (even though most are after money).
I know Kenny Hilliard feels the same way but it doesn't hurt he can compete for a lot more playing time having the seniority with McGee. Especially with him and McGee being the only returning backs with a lot of playing time. I know Fournette will get touches but Les loves the fact that he stayed.
