Senior tight end Foster Moreau picked to wear prestigious No. 18 jersey
BATON ROUGE - Senior tight end Foster Moreau has been selected by the LSU Tigers to wear the prestigious No. 18 jersey for LSU this upcoming season, the team announced late Friday evening.
Believe it or not, Moreau is the Tigers leading returning receiver after hauling in 24 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns in 2017.
Consider it a fitting moment for the leader in LSU's locker room. Not to mention, this spring Moreau also read a book called, "The 5 Levels of Leadership," by John Maxwell.
Defensive lineman Christian LaCouture and fullback J.D. Moore both had the honor of wearing No. 18 last season, that was the first time that happened in school history.
The No. 18 tradition dates back to the 2003 season.
