I only volunteered for one year and was unable to commit to Jeff Boss when offered a scholarship because of prior school and financial commitments. There is not a day that goes by where I don't think about JB and Stringfellow allowing me the opportunity to prep the helmets, assist the players at practice or get TS ready for gameday. My only regret was not becoming a full-time EM during my tenure at LSU. Jeff Boss was the best mentor/friend anyone could ask for and his passing was a monumental loss to LSU. I'd give anything to see his smiling face when I come to TS for games. Forever LSU!! Geaux Tigers!!
