All-American Chase to wear prestigious No. 7 for LSU this season
Yet another standout LSU football player will don a hallowed jersey number for the Tigers this coming season.
The first two years of his career as part of the LSU football program, Ja'Marr Chase wore the No. 1 jersey. Thursday, Ed Orgeron confirmed that starting with spring practice this coming Saturday, the standout wide receiver will wear No. 7 for the Tigers.
“Ja’Marr is a tremendous football player from the great state of Louisiana that represents our football program with great character and integrity,” the LSU football head coach said in a statement. “(His parents) Jimmy and Toleah have done a great job of raising him and he has worked extremely hard on and off the field to develop as a player, while also becoming an outstanding leader for our team. He’s very deserving of having the opportunity to be the next LSU player to wear number 7. I know he will do a great job of representing that number and all of those who have worn the number 7 before him.”
