My Dad and brother were always helping me to become better, and we would watch as many LSU games as we could growing up. When I was offered the chance to compete in the greatest atmosphere I’ve ever experienced, I couldn’t resist. Weekends at ‘The Box’ as a youngster were the most influential reasons for my decision to come to LSU” … born June 2, 2001, in Baton Rouge, La.
