After dominating SEC defenses last season, Leonard Fournette appears determined to do so once again.
LSU’s star running back recently posted a photo on Instagram in which he looks absolutely jacked. Sometimes looks can be deceiving, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with Fournette.
Tommy Moffitt, the Tigers’ strength and conditioning coordinator, said the star back ‘destroyed’ his recent conditioning test while appearing as a guest on the Culotta and the Prince show on ESPN Radio in Baton Rouge.
“I know Leonard gets a lot of press about his weight and all that,” Moffitt said on the radio show. “But our fan base can rest assured that the big man came out this morning and destroyed it. (Fournette) for his size, he was phenomenal. He really stood out. I’m sure I’ll leave somebody out, because we’ve had some great backs here, but I don’t remember a back in recent history that was as impressive on their conditioning test as that guy was. He was phenomenal.”
Fournette ran for nearly 2,000 yards (1,953) with 22 touchdowns on 300 carries. The Tigers return a veteran team, but will rely on the star running back to lead them in 2016. If the offseason is any indication, LSU fans should get ready for plenty of excitement this fall.
