The Dunham School in Baton Rouge where Derek Stingley Jr. played high school football will be retiring his No. 24 on Friday, August 27 during their jamboree.

Stingley Jr. wore No. 24 during his time at Dunham and for his first two seasons at LSU. He will be switching to No. 7 this upcoming season. Per Fox8Live:

Stingley’s number will be just the third in school history to be retired, joining No. 14 Todd Kinchen and No. 9 Sean Cangelosi. Entering the 2021 season will be wearing No. 7 Tigers,

The No. 7 is a special number given to the expected top playmaker on the team each season. The No. 7 has been worn by offensive players Leonard Fournette and DJ Chark. But some of the best defensive backs to ever play for LSU, like Jim Thorpe Award winners Patrick Peterson and Grant Delpit, as well as Chuck Bednarik Award winner Tyrann Mathieu, have also worn the special jersey number.
