In case you missed it up, LSU wide receiver signee Drake Davis wrote a great piece in The Players' Tribune Wednesday about why he signed with the Tigers.

Davis, a native of Baton Rouge talks about growing up around town, his early memories of LSU football, and a trip to Tiger Stadium where he had memorable run-in with Ben Simmons and Les Miles.

After reading that, I'm reminded of that line from The Replacements:

"You've got to have heart." - Coach McGinty
"Can you elaborate?" - Reporter
"Miles and miles of heart." - Coach McGinty

This kid has it.

Looking at all the comments and thinking, that article can't be that good. Can it? But once I read it, it gave me chills. Absolutely fabulous article. You gotta be from Louisiana to truly feel it. This guy is gonna do great things at LSU, I have no doubt.

EXCELLENT, Drake! You obviously have a talent for telling a good story. You'll be a real asset recruiting future LSU football players. Looking forward to watching you play next year. :-)

If that kid doesn't go into Journalism or Creative Writing or, shit, Communications at least, it would be a waste of talent. That was really well written.
