The king of quarterbacking in Louisiana has been Drew Brees the last 13 years, but LSU’s signal caller is giving him a run for his money in 2019.
“I like that he wears number nine,” Brees smiled as he talked about Joe Burrow. “I appreciate his story. Midwest kid. Goes to Ohio State, it doesn't work out and makes his way to LSU. He's going to be the Heisman winner. He's leading his team to the playoff game and hopefully the national championship.”
LSU football recently put out a video where Burrow says he kind-of grew up a Saints fan in Ohio and that Brees was one of his idols.
“He’s been fun to watch, it’s fun to watch him operate in that offense,” Brees added.
