WATCH: Former LSU RB Leonard Fournette destroys 700 of his trophies, donates to high school football team
Leonard Fournette doesn’t need your trophies. Nor does he need his own, apparently.
The former LSU megastar approved the dismantling of 700 of his own childhood trophies — for a good cause.
In a MET-Rx promotional video that was released on Tuesday, Fournette discusses his decision to hand over his trophies to be melted down and used as material for weights for a high school football team in Florida.
“I have plenty of trophies,” Fournette said. “I’m a champion. I love winning.
“But when you do win the trophy, the big thing you wanted to win. Like, what’s next?”
You can watch the video below, which includes a grateful high school coach and Fournette greeting the team to which he donated the new weights:
Fournette was the No. 4 overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft and will play his rookie season for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Though it is still early in Jaguars training camp, Fournette is already turning heads with his performance.
