Leonard Fournette sends prayers to South Carolina

The state of South Carolina is certainly in a bad way right now. Since this past weekend, the state has been dealing with terrible flooding that has been threatening and even taking the lives of people all over the state.

The weather has even forced the South Carolina Gamecocks to move this weekend’s game with LSU to Baton Rouge. If there is one group of people that know about bad weather and flooding, it’s the people of Louisiana.

One LSU player in particular is trying to do all he can to make the Gamecocks and their home state feel better about what is going on. According to College Spun, LSU star running back Leonard Fournette has been sending his prayers to the state.

Prayers going out to South Carolina it reminds me something similar that happen to us…… keep faith

Fournette knows from first-hand experience what it is like to deal with terrible flooding. During Hurricane Katrina, Fournette and his family, New Orleans natives, stayed in their hometown and were forced to sleep on a bridge as the waters from the levees breaking destroyed their home in the Ninth Ward.

It’s great to see that Fournette and the rest of the Tiger family is trying to do all they can to help the people of South Carolina. I’m sure there will be a lot of hugs and well wishes exchanged at the game on Saturday.
