LSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette burst into the SEC last season, and is considered by many to be a Heisman contender this season.
There were rumors circulating on the Internet on Thursday that Fournette would add “Le.” to his jersey this season because his younger brother, Lanard Fournette, has joined the Tigers. “Le. Fournette” and maybe “La. Fournette” — it made logical sense because it might be one way for the fans to tell the brothers apart.
As it turns out, the rumors were false, per LSU’s sports information director.
