Live from Baton Rouge—it’s Saturday night!
And really, can you think of a more electrifying place to spend a fall Saturday than Death Valley?
The passion and pageantry that surrounds LSU football is what keeps 225 publishing our annual Tiger Pride edition every August.
This special issue’s purpose is to tell the stories you won’t read anywhere else. To introduce our readers to LSU football players, coaches, staff and fans on a deeper, more personal level.
This year, we spoke with defensive end Breiden Fehoko and his father on the haka ritual that means so much to their family—and now to LSU fans.
We sat down with new athletic director Scott Woodward to learn about his own time as an LSU student—and how that experience impacts his leadership today.
We talked to fans, too—people like Elise Smith, whose love for the team inspired her to start Geaux Clear Collection, one of the coolest lines of stadium-approved clear handbags.
We even interviewed one of the team’s unsung heroes: Bryan Madden, a state trooper whose off-duty job is guarding head coach Ed Orgeron on game days.
And just for fun, we asked the players about their favorite restaurants in Baton Rouge.
It’s all mixed in with season predictions and in-depth features on the offense, defense and players to watch.
After reading, we hope you feel more connected to the Tigers—and even more ready for 2019 game days.
Let’s do this.
