LSU running back Leonard Fournette is known for using the word “savage” on social media, but it’s a relatively common phrase among high school and college students across the country.
So is it merely coincidence that Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson used the word — which typically serves as a compliment — to describe teammate Derrick Henry after the Tide’s 31-6 win over Mississippi State on Saturday?
“A tru Savage!” Robinson wrote as the caption to a photo of Henry running wild over the Bulldogs.
Henry stole much of the Heisman Trophy talk from Fournette after last week’s win over LSU. The junior now has 1,458 yards and 19 touchdowns on the season.
