Website creates fake lawyer for Leonard Fournette’s “victims”
LSU running back Leonard Fournette has been so difficult to stop, an attorney has set out to help defenders who have suffered damages trying (and failing) to corral the Heisman Trophy front-runner, according to AL.com.
Montgomery “Sledge Hammer” Van Buren is ready to help any defensive players seeking compensation for the beating Fournette has handed them. The fictional character was created by AL.com as part of its “SEC Shorts” comedy series.
“Have you, or a defensive player you love, been injured, embarrassed or otherwise inconvenienced by the entity known as Leonard Fournette,” Van Buren said in his spoof commercial, “If so, you better call me right now!”
Defenders don’t need a lawyer, they need a sage who can tell them how to stop Fournette. The sophomore’s 631 yards are the most for a halfback through the first three games of the season in 15 years. Fournette is on pace for 2,313 yards, which would be the fifth-best rushing season in NCAA history and is currently third in the country in rushing yards.
There might not be a game plan or a lawyer that can stop Fournette. Check out Van Buren’s advertisement on AL.com here.
