LSU's SEC championship team is playing in the College Football Playoffs against Oklahoma. Coach Ed Orgeron was recently named 'Coach of the Year.'
Quarterback Joe Burrow won the university's second Heisman Trophy and a number of other honors. Wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase won the Fred Biletnikoff Award and Safety Grant Delpit took home the Jim Thorpe Award.
For all these reasons, Ardoin felt there was plenty to celebrate.
In the midst of No. 1 LSU’s so far undefeated season, the players and their coach took a moment to relax at the College Football Awards. They enjoyed their success. They also looked ahead to more significant dreams.
"The entire LSU team and staff is worthy of appreciation for their passion, diligence and teamwork in bringing positive recognition to the state of Louisiana," Ardoin wrote on the declaration.
In honor of the success of the LSU football team, and their first trip to the College Football Playoffs, I am declaring tomorrow "LSU Football Day!" Congratulations to Coach O and the Fighting Tigers! pic.twitter.com/7BHgmrOR3q— La. Sec. of State (@Louisiana_sos) December 15, 2019
