2020 LSU Football Coaching Clinic
A Letter from Head Coach Ed Orgeron
It’s been a quick turnaround for our football team after we put together one of the most memorable and exciting years in LSU history in 2019. I couldn’t be more proud of the way our team competed throughout the 2019 season – the players, our staff and everyone associated with the program was dedicated and committed to the LSU Standard of Excellence and the results showed with an undefeated 15-0 record and a national championship. It was certainly a great year for the LSU Tigers and the great state of Louisiana.
We are now focused on 2020 and preparing to put another championship caliber team on the field. We are currently in our off-season program with spring practice scheduled to start on March 7.
I would like to invite you to join us for our annual Spring Football Coaches Clinic on March 12-13. Pro Football Hall of Famer and Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Allen is our featured speaker. As one of the greatest NFL and collegiate running backs of all-time, Marcus will long be remembered as one of the best to ever play the game at any level.
Our coaches clinic lineup also includes John Robinson, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame and longtime head coach at Southern Cal and the Los Angeles Rams. Coach Robinson is LSU’s senior consultant to the head coach. LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini, will be talking about the LSU defense on Thursday evening. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to come and “talk ball” with our staff and other great Coaches.
Spring practices are open to high school coaches so please join us at your convenience. Our Spring Game will be on Saturday, April 18.
I hope to see you soon!
LSU FOOTBALL HEAD COACH
Marcus Allen is one of the greatest NFL and Collegiate Running Backs of all time. A former Heisman Trophy winner and a Pro Football Hall of Famer, Marcus Allen will long be remembered as one of the best to ever play the game at any level. As a Super Bowl Champ, Super Bowl MVP, League MVP, and comeback player of the year, Marcus is arguably the most decorated athlete of all-time.
Even now, Marcus Allen’s career continues to impress fans of both the college and professional level. He is arguably the best goal line runner of all time. A true Hall of Famer, his career on the field was the stuff of legends and he continues to live up to his reputation as an All-Star even in retirement.
Keynote: There is no one better when it comes to motivation and leadership. Marcus delivers a powerful keynote on the power of positive thinking and setting goals. From writing a Heisman speech at age 11 to setting out to be the first college player to rush for more than 2,000 yards. Marcus takes you on a personal journey of adversity, knowing your competition and beating the odds.
Community Outreach: Marcus started the Marcus Allen 32 Foundation and puts on an annual Celebrity Poker and Golf tournament.
