Video: LSU trains for the first time in shoulder pads this fall



LSU football trained for the first time in epaulettes on Wednesday. The five-day acclimatization period allows Tigers to spend the next two days in shells and a fifth day in full pads.

Highlights of the day included appearances from receivers Ja’Marr Chase and Terrace Marshall as well as first-year tight end Arik Gilbert on receivers from Myles Brennan.

Gilbert was one of the most talked about players during the offseason. One of Brennan’s popular targets alongside Chase and Marshall is the Gatorade Player of the Year.

On Wednesday, Brennan and safety JaCoby Stevens met with the media to talk about how fall practice is going. The two were in the same recruiting class and are now two of the team’s vocal leaders.

Stevens noticed Brennan’s increased confidence in the game, something that started in the spring.

“Myles knows his failures, he knows where he can throw his failure, he can read defenses well and he has a strong arm,” Stevens said. “I mean, Myles can put the ball in there and let Racey (McMath) and let Ja’Marr (Chase) and let Terrace (Marshall Jr.) run over there and get it back. things Myles always had. Myles always had a strong arm, and one thing that’s really hard to cover all guys is that he makes you cover all the ground. ”

Brennan adopted the “Joe Burrow Plan” because he takes all the online classes and lives on his own to avoid distractions. Whenever he’s not studying, eating or sleeping, Brennan devotes 100% of his time to football, which Burrow did last year.

The junior quarterback said on Wednesday his mundane lifestyle has helped him stay healthy and safe.

“It’s been nice not having to worry so much about being exposed to the outside community,” said Brennan.
