"Changing Lives, Improving Communities"


Today was the first day back for LSU and things are looking different already. New passing game coordinator Joe Brady has brought with him a wealth of knowledge from the New Orleans Saints to reenergize the Tigers. “I’m a big believer in that the defense aren’t the only ones that apply pressure.” Coach Brady stated, “We are going to take what the defense gives you, but it’s our job as an offense, and as coaches, and that’s what we are going to do with our offense in the passing game.”

Coach Brady was energetic early at the start of practice, screaming “Push the tempo up! Let’s Geaux!” pushing the offense to increase the speed of the drill. Already the possibility of quarterback Joe Burrows SEC media prediction of the Tigers scoring 40 to 50 points on opponents could be coming to fruition. The offense looked crisp already, even though it was the first day of camp and you will normally have some growing pains. Quarterback Joe Burrow looks more comfortable, after having a full year under center.

Tight End Thaddeus Moss practiced today and looked to be taking first team reps, great news for Tiger fans, as the NC State transfer has been hampered by the injury bug, but has been making great progress in his recover. By bringing in Coach Joe Brady, the tight end position could be a focal point of the offense, and Moss has the genes to be great.

Recent 18 jersey recipient Lloyd Cushenberry III was wearing that jersey at practice, so while he can’t wear it in games due to him being an offensive lineman, he will be wearing it at practice.

On defense K’Lavon Chaisson made a return to full practice today, after suffering a knee injury against Miami last year that ended his season. Before that injury he was being talked about as being the next sack leader for LSU, breaking Arden Key’s record which stands at 12. LSU currently has a national best four linebackers on the Butkus Award watch list, Chaisson being one of them.

Defensive linemen Rashard Lawrence and Breiden Fehoko look to be in top shape, Fehoko, who graduated earlier today, was told to stop bench pressing at one point by strength and conditioning coach Tommy Moffit at 500lbs. Coach Ed Orgeron who will be taking up some of the defensive line coaching duties due to the recent injury to Coach Dennis Johnson, was coaching up their technique.

Not seen at practice today were recent tight end convert Stephen Sullivan, who was attending graduation, and wide receiver Dee Anderson. Dressed but not practicing was freshman running back Josh Williams
