LSU football coach Ed Orgeron is in his first season as head coach of the Tigers without the word “interim” as part of the title. Ultimately, his success will be determined by how many wins he’s able to get out on the field, but small things like this go a long way.
This weekend, news started to spread of one of the more considerate things a football coach has done for those who don’t suit up in pads and a helmet.
Coach Orgeron sent letters of appreciation to each member of the LSU Marching Band, thanking them for their hard work and dedication.
Moreover, they are addressed to each person individually and hand signed. While the message from letter-to-letter is the same, it’s obvious he didn’t print out one document and stuff a bunch of envelopes.
The Tigers play their first home game in Death Valley against the Syracuse Orange on Sept. 23. LSU won’t be too far from home for their next matchup, though. The team takes on conference foe Mississippi State on Saturday, Sept. 16.
Both teams are 2-0 entering the contest.
