Ten Tigers turning heads in LSU spring football practice
LSU is a day shy of two weeks into spring football practices and there are two scrimmages in the books already for the Tigers. Head coach Ed Orgeron is thrilled so far with the new energy around the team and his new hires in the offseason.
“I see our guys happy, wanting to be at LSU. Coming out early. I get to work at 6 and the parking lot is full already,” Orgeron said last week. “I leave at 9 o’clock, some guys are still working. Guys are coming in early. You’ve got some young coordinators that want to prove themselves, that are very hungry, that are very detailed, working very hard. Yes sir, no sir. They’re doing a great job of organizing the staff. Got a lot of guys that want to be here. That makes a difference.”
With a large group of returning veterans along with an influx of early enrollees from the 2021 class, Orgeron sees the group making serious improvements already just in terms of their habits. Practices have been competitive, physical and reenergized with the new faces on the coaching staff as well.
“We have some older guys obviously that have been around coming back that are leading the football team,” the coach explained on his Zoom call with reporters last Tuesday. “I think our coaches are doing a tremendous job with energy, things seem to be flowing very good right now.”
