-Congratulations to LSU running back

Ty Davis-Price and his girlfriend on the birth of their baby girl Brooklyn Mae!

Both Mother and child are recovering nicely and everything has worked out as we'd hoped for Ty and his family.


The star running back posted an Instagram photo revealing his gorgeous baby girl, with the precious caption "you just made my life 3000x better".


We couldn't be more thrilled for the family and for Ty as he enters fatherhood!

LET'S GEAUX BROOKLYN!!!

This was news that I couldn't wait to share.


-Pass Catcher Jack Bech will be wearing #80 this season, taking after such greats as NFL Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry, a star wide out for LSU's 2011 SEC title-winning juggernaut.

An LSU staffer had this to say about Bech:

"He's a guy everyone looks at, even though he's a freshman. Running the stadiums with Coach Moffitt.....it was clear he had more to him. On the hardest day, Friday, he kept everyone going. A natural leader.

He's already a popular guy around the team."


-Linebacker Antoine Sampah told us "Coach Baker was really happy with my progress this spring," LSU's linebackers coach making it known that Sampah is one of the contenders for major playing time in 2021.

Sampah recorded a brilliant interception off QB Garrett Nussmeier during a standout spring game performance, adding 6 tackles and a broken up pass to his box score.

Throughout LSU's experimental spring scrimmages, Sampah remained a highlight for Baker and LBs GA Alec Osbourne.

Now that Sampah has returned to full health after a bad knee injury as a high school senior, he's ready to rock and roll come September 4th.

Will he be able to grab a starting spot with Micha Baskerville and Mike Jones Jr on the scene?


-LSU are moving fast on Name, Image and Likeness, promoting themselves as NILSU with an electronic billboard in the center of Times Square, followed by a Cody Worsham, Scott Woodward and Derek Ponamsky-coordinated social media blitz.

LSU have wanted to pay their student-athletes for decades, and now they'll be able to call upon their ahead of the curve NIL project right on cue.


-The Tigers staff have been paying been attention to Armoni Goodwin, a special athlete boasting uncanny pace, next level moves and a violent running style.

His relationship with elite rusher Corey Kiner has cast the pair in the spotlight, with everyone from Kevin Faulk to Jake Peetz or Coach O firmly believing both backs can play a big role in 2021.
