Purple defeats White in annual L-Club Spring Game
Saturday Night in Death Valley returned … and the 2018 LSU Football season kicked off in the annual L-Club Spring Game.
First and foremost, the quarterbacks were on full display, as Justin McMillan, Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse tried to prove to the fans that they are the guy that should lead this offense in 2018.
McMillan took the first snaps, and would end with the best raw stats. The junior quarterback threw 14-29 passing, for 216 yards and a touchdown. Myles Brennan would enter after and go 11-23, for 113 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Then, Lowell Narcisse came in last to throw 6-13, for 205 yards and a touchdown himself.
Freshman wideout Justin Jefferson reeled in a short pass from Lowell Narcisse and would then go on to take it 94-yards for the touchdown. Jefferson, like many of LSU’s other receivers, looks to be a young but talented threat in this offense going into summer.
The rushing game was led by sophomore back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who rushed for 14 carries, 74 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers also got a great performance from freshman Tae Provens, who had 6 carries, for 64 yards and a touchdown. Nick Brossette notched a touchdown, as well, on 8 carries for 27 yards.
“He’s showing right now that he’s our most explosive back,” said Orgeron on Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
Defensively, safety Grant Delpit suffered a slight shoulder injury. Orgeron said he could not provide any specifics on that just yet. On the defensive front, sophomore pass rusher K’Lavon Chaisson “showed out” as a very reliable replacement to Arden Key.
