NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – New Orleans native and former LSU standout Leonard Fournette is giving back after a tornado devastated parts of New Orleans East Tuesday.
The New Orleans native and St. Augustine grad sent a truck load of bottled water to the command center, where recovery operations are taking place.
Fournette, 22, is known for his altruistic actions over the years, having just announced a scholarship program to benefit students who are impacted by TOPS cuts in Louisiana.
Fournette is leaving LSU for the NFL Draft in April. He’s expected to be a top 10 pick.
