A Letter from LSU Football's Nick Brossette
Growing up in Baton Rouge, I always dreamed of playing football for LSU. On February 4, 2015 my dream finally came true; I became an LSU Tiger. Throughout this journey, I have learned to persevere when my bother passed away, be patient when I tore my ACL, stay determined when I wanted to give up, and be courageous when others doubted me. My time here at LSU has made me into the man I am today. These moments of adversity have prepared me for the success I hope to have in the future. I would not be here without the support from my family and friends, but most importantly my mother, Rita, who showed me what real determination and sacrifice is.
While attending LSU, I have had a tremendous amount of support and love. I want to thank my coaches, training staff, nutritionist, and the Cox Academic Center for Student-Athletes for helping me be the best student-athlete I could be. Most importantly, I want to thank Tiger Nation, the state of Louisiana, and my alma mater U-High. I will be forever grateful for those individuals that helped me along my journey. I will always bleed purple and gold.
