Les Miles surprises players with post-practice snow cones

LSU Tigers head football coach Les Miles may have a reputation as a hard-ass coach, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how to reward his players for a hard day’s work. This afternoon, after practicing in the hot Baton Rouge sun, as in 98 degrees hot while feeling like 103 (per Weather.com), LSU football players were rewarded with the sight of a snow cone truck outside of practice.

LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette tweeted a picture of the players enjoying the frosty summer treat.

It’s good to see that Miles knows how to reward his players for a hard day’s work, rather than have the team’s offseason mantra be something along the lines of “Eat. Sleep. Practice. Repeat,” and that he truly does care about team morale on top of putting a successful squad out on the field.

That said, with frosty goodness in their bellies tonight, perhaps LSU will have an extra bounce in its step for the season opener against McNeese State on September 5.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, since it’s pretty hot where I am as well, I think I might go get a snow cone myself!
