Leonard Fournette removing braces before Alabama game

If you look at LSU running back Leonard Fournette, you would think he was damn near perfect. He is one of the best players in the country and he is an even better person off the field.

There is one thing that you may not know about him, however, unless you actually see him smile. Fournette has braces and it’s time for them to come off.

Fournette has a little more than a week to get them taken off and The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger reported that they will be off before the Tigers take the field in Tuscaloosa next Saturday.

Fournette keeps missing his appointment to have his braces removed. Plans to make it this week. Could go to #Bama w/o braces. #LSU

Beating Alabama and essentially locking up the SEC West would be a great way to celebrate such a milestone for Fournette. He could surely have a lot to smile about on November 7.
