So what’s next for former Tigers star Leonard Fournette? Try a bobblehead.
The former LSU running back, now with the NFL’s playoff-bound Jacksonville Jaguars, has a new limited-edition bobblehead in his honor, sold by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
The bobblehead depicts Fournette in his LSU jersey, where he ran for 3,830 yards and 40 touchdowns during his three years in Baton Rouge from 2015 to 2017. He was a first-team All-SEC and consensus All-American selection with the Tigers, ranking behind only Kevin Faulk, Dalton Hilliard and Charles Alexander on the school’s all-time rushing list.
Prior to his time at LSU, Fournette played football and ran track at New Orleans St. Augustine.
The Jaguars, led by Fournette, are off to their best start since 2007 and clinched their first playoff berth in a decade on Sunday against Houston. In his first 11 NFL games since his selection with the fourth overall draft pick in April, Fournette has rushed for 923 yards and eight touchdowns. In addition, he has 29 receptions for 213 yards and a touchdown.
“Leonard is one of the NFL’s brightest stars, and he’s made an immediate impact this year with the Jaguars,” said Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “This bobblehead will be a great collectible for Tigers and Jaguars fans.”
