LeBron James helped bring a championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers. LSU quarterback Brandon Harris would like to do the same for the LSU Tigers.
But with the season still months away, Harris is looking to replicate some of the leadership qualities the 4-time NBA MVP shows.
On a Thursday radio interview with Culotta & The Prince on ESPN 104.5 FM in Baton Rouge, Harris said his leadership style is similar to James’s.
“One thing I did take away from the finals,” Harris said, “LeBron (James) was telling his guys, ‘Be a star in your role, wherever that’s at.’ Whether that’s me trying to help the quarterbacks … Regardless of if I’m trying to be the leader of the team, we’ve still got young quarterbacks in the room, whether that be Lindsey Scott, who’s coming in and he’s a freshman. We’re trying to help him. All of the quarterbacks in the room is trying to help everybody.”
Harris will be the Tigers starting quarterback in the fall and entering his junior season. The Tigers return 18 starters from last year’s team, and figures to be one of the best teams in college football.
Harris started all 12 games last season for the Tigers, throwing for 13 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. LSU opens its season at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, as the Tigers take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
