LSU YouTube Fridays: DBU

Tiger fans, I know the anticipation for tomorrow’s matchup is driving you crazy! To help you make it through the day, I have created Youtube Fridays! Every Friday before a game, I will show a few of my favorite LSU highlights. Kick back, click the purple links, watch some thrilling highlights, and comment what you think. Thank you, and most importantly, GEAUX TIGERS!

LSU has had absolutely dominate defensive backs come through the system, many are currently playing on Sundays. In their honor, this week’s episode of LSU YouTube Friday’s is reserved strictly for the athletes that have recently turned LSU into Defensive Backs University, DBU!

Patrick Peterson is a freak athlete, who was loved by everyone in Baton Rouge. He is an extremely accomplished cornerback who won the Thorpe Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back, and the Bednarik Award, given to the nation’s top defender. Peterson had countless jaw dropping highlights in his time at LSU, but I decided to go with his punt return against Western Virgina, where he made the coverage look foolish then struck the Heisman pose when he found the end-zone. Peterson strikes the Heisman after his return!

Morris Claiborne was sensational for LSU. However he was often times overshadowed, by Patrick Peterson in 2010, and Tyrann Matheiu in 2011. The Cowboys didn’t overlook him though. They gave up their first and second round draft picks to move up in the draft and select him 6th overall. Mo C won the Thorpe Award his Junior year, before going pro. Claiborne made big plays every Saturday for the Tigers, but this play was an excellent display of his talent and abilities. Mo C’s incredible interception!

Eric Reid is a big hitting safety, who added a certain swagger to the LSU defense. Reid was a big leader on the team, always getting the team hyped for big games. Reid was constantly in the right position making big plays. Reid struck fear into his offensive opponents with his thunderous hits. This hit shook the stadium. Don’t mess with Reid!

Tune in next Friday for more exciting highlights. GEAUX TIGERS!
