Met fournette a couple times in school. Such a great guy! I wish LSU could have done more for him (hired a different HC) but Im glad to see he's still representing LSU. He deserves everything good coming his way

I'm not sure what brand of pads LSU and Jacksonville use but if they're both Nike it shouldn't be a big deal

Rep the Tigers any way you can. I'll be pulling against the Patriots in the playoffs for the first time in a long time.
