Good Football Player.
Great Track Man.
thank you. someone who gets it.
Exactly...good luck x man...
How about this catch and run to the endzone against Moo State ?
It was nice, but he'll be a lot more successful on the track than on the football field, I think. His dream has always been the Olympics. It's not worth throwing that all away by playing football and risking breaking a leg or blowing out a knee.
Best of luck to the man. Thanks for some great years.
I agree that he was better off going pro in track, but I am a greedy person and wanted to see him be a great down field threat for us this year:angryfire :angryfire
I wish him the best of luck though in the Olympics, that guy can really turn it on at the end of sprints
As someone who went to as many :lsup: track meets annually as
football games back in the day, I'll miss him on the gridiron but
I'm VERY PROUD of his accomplishments on the cinders.
I'm just bummed that I had plans in So Cal (a wedding) the
weekend that he tore it up in Sacramento, a 2 hour drive
from my house. Would have LOVED to have been there.
Anytime an :lsup: athlete is compared to one of the all-time
greats, as the X-man was with Jesse Owens, then we all need
to try to understand what this man's destiny was.
To be the best.
Unfortunately, it was track instead of football.
GOOD LUCK X-MAN.
Represent wherever your speed takes you. :thumb:
good point, I didnt look at it that way
"While I am excited with the prospects of my future endeavors as a professional athlete, the end of my athletic association with LSU also saddens me. It has been an honor and a privilege to wear the LSU Tiger track uniform and the Tiger football uniform."
hes a good guy, wish him best of luck
