Former LSU star and current Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson made a $1 million commitment to his alma mater on Saturday. It is the largest donation from a former LSU student-athlete, according to LSUSports.net:
quote:

Peterson's gift includes $500,000 in cash with another $500,000 in planned giving. Peterson's pledge will go toward the renovation of the LSU Football Operations Center.

“We are very proud and appreciative of Patrick and his family for this amazing gift,” LSU vice chancellor and director of athletics Joe Alleva said. “Patrick is a great ambassador for LSU and a serves as a tremendous role model for our players.
Here is what Peterson had to say about the donation.
quote:

“I want to set an example and challenge other former players to give back to our great University,” Peterson said. “LSU is a wonderful place that helped me develop into the person that I am today. I hope that my donation will encourage and inspire other former student-athletes to give back.”

I love PP7. He is a great ambassador for LSU. As for those calling Shaq out, he has donated millions of dollars to LSU. He does it anonymously though. I wish he would just do it publicly to show our fanbase he is here for LSU but it is his money and he can do what he wants to do with it and the manner in which he does.

LSU already made millions off him as a student athlete. PP is very generous. Thanks

Greatest former player/supporter of this generation. Visits games and practice, shows love to recruits on social media, makes a seven-figure donation. This kid has been pure P&G since we recruited him out of Florida.

As much as I want to shite on this guy for not attending Florida, I just can't bring myself to do it. This guy is a class act, and a great representative for LSU.
