Video: LSU football team meet with Louisiana flood victims

The state of Louisiana has been rocked with some of the worst flooding the state has seen since Hurricane Katrina this week and the LSU athletic programs have been doing all they can to help. The football team met with some of the victims this week and every one was pretty excited to meet some of their favorite players.

Many victims have found refuge from the floods at Celtic Studios this week and the Tigers decided to surprise them. Head coach Les Miles, quarterback Brandon Harris and many others were able to give the people a small ray of sunshine in what has been a very dark week for the state.

It really makes you value life a lot more,” Harris said. “I lost my car, but, at the same time, it could’ve been a lot worse than that…just being able to come in here and put a smile on someone’s face, that’s important to me.”

From sports information director Michael Bonnette going out on a boat and saving people to the baseball team helping clean up debris, the LSU Tigers have certainly been making a big contribution to their city and state this week.
