Yes, Leonard Fournette Can Sell His Jersey For Flood Victims
When LSU's Leonard Fournette said auctioning off his jersey for charity would be an NCAA violation, the Internet erupted. Fortunately, he was wrong.By Eugene Daniels | October 10, 2015
Instead of hyping up his athletic skill in a post-game interview, LSU running back Leonard Fournette offered to auction off his jersey to help with flood relief efforts in South Carolina.
In part, he said, "I want to send my prayers, condolences and empathy to the people of South Carolina. What they are going through reminds me of what we went through... 10 years ago."
The gesture rounded out a day of generosity from the Tigers. The flooding had already moved the game to Baton Rouge and LSU seemed to do whatever it could to make sure the Gamecocks felt like they were playing on their home turf.
