As a freshman, LSU Tigers running back Leonard Fournette rushed for 1,034 yards and ten touchdowns while averaging 5.5 yards per carry.
Now entering his second year, Fournette is poised for another impressive season where he can emerge as a premier running back in the SEC and it looks like he could be better than anyone would have imagined.
According to the buzz from LSU Spring Practice, Leonard Fournette has been the team’s most improved player.
“You’d be hard-pressed to have me tell you anybody other than Leonard is the most-improved player on our offense,” offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said during an appearance on ESPN 104.5 in Baton Rouge, via Dr. Saturday.
“I tell people that and their eyes kind of open up because he was probably our best player a year ago, but he is. He’s tremendously improved. He’s a special kid. He’s a special player and people are going to get to see a lot of Leonard Fournette in Tiger Stadium this fall.”
Despite his early success at the collegiate level, it speaks volumes that Fournette continues to improve.
By showing that he is willing to continue learning and improving his game, Leonard Fournette is putting the rest of the college football world on notice.
“He’s like a lot of great players. They’re never satisfied. They never feel like they’ve arrived,” Camerson said. “Even with what he did in the bowl game and the A&M game, he came in to this spring just dialed in and focused on certain things he wanted to get better at and he’s done that.”
LSU will hope Fournette can continue to impress the coaching staff throughout his sophomore campaign.
