Former Tiger looks to motivate, inspire, empower students
BATON ROUGE - A star with LSU and a two-time Super Bowl champion with the New York Giants, Corey Webster kicked-off his foundation's new tour this week.
Webster and Kali Johnson stopped by 2une In Friday to talk about "Motivate, Inspire, Empower". It's part of Webster's "Suited for Success" foundation he started back in 2012. "Suited for Success" is a mentoring program that seeks to create volunteerism and peer to peer accountability among students.
The former St. James Wildcat came home to Louisiana to start a new chapter for the foundation. Webster began the "Motivate, Inspire, Empower" tour Thursday at Baton Rouge Magnet High School, Scotlandville Magnet High School and Madison Prep High School. He explained the goal of the new tour Friday on 2une In.
"I think a lot of guys look up to us as role models", Webster said, "so I wanted to take that responsibility on, inspire them, tell them my ups and downs and share that experience."
Webster won a BCS National Championship at LSU before the New York Giants took him in the second round of the 2005 NFL draft. He has played in 121 games in nine seasons with the team, compiling 372 tackles, 20 interceptions and a pair of Super Bowl Championships in the process.
