After family loss, Brossette ready to begin new chapter at LSU

BATON ROUGE—Entering his freshman season at LSU, Nicholas Brossette was going to be living out his dream. Unfortunately for the 6-0, 214-pound tailback, he won’t get the chance to share it with one of his best friends. Brossette’s brother, Mendel Esnault died earlier this year and never got the chance to see his brother put on the purple and gold. “It’s hard,” Brossette admitted. “But the LSU family I have now whether it is the coaches, administration or my teammates have shown me love and I really appreciate everything they have done for me and my family. My brother really did everything for us and ever since we found him lying in his bed that day, we really didn’t know what we were going to do. Having everyone there to help us was truly a blessing. “Coach Miles was great too, very much a fatherly figure to me. He has really always been there

Key believes he will be ready to contribute soon

BATON ROUGE—The similarities to another former LSU standout are eerie. Same uniform #49, former great was 6-5 and he is 6-6, former great was 240 pounds, he is 230 pounds and they play the same position. Will Arden Key have the same kind of impact on the LSU defense that former Tiger Barkevious Mingo did? Only time will tell. That time begins next week. The Atlanta native is excited to get to work this season and prove he belongs. “People have brought up the comparisons to him (Mingo),” Key said. “But now I am to the point in my time at LSU that I just want to be Arden Key. I look and play like Mingo, but eventually I just want to be Arden Key. Right now, honestly I don’t think I’m ready yet, but around mid-season I believe I can be an every down guy. When I become an every down guy, it is

Wilson says Ducre the ultimate team player

BATON ROUGE—Holding the key position of recruiting coordinator, LSU assistant coach Frank Wilson gets to see it all. He helps the Tigers get the future superstars of the world as was the case with Leonard Fournette. Wilson is also responsible for getting in his words “the ultimate program players” as well to compliment the high-profiled superstars like Fournette. He believes he and the rest of the LSU staff found one in Mandeville product David Ducre. “The great thing about David is he has done everything we ask of him,” Wilson said. “He is the ultimate teammate. He is smart and hardworking with a great attention to detail. We like what he brings to the table for us. He gives us the versatility of being a fullback, but also if need be he can go back and play the tailback position.” The leading rusher for his Lakeshore High School squad throughout his career, Ducre rushed for

Despite loss of players, Lacouture says defensive line can be dominant

BATON ROUGE—With freshman defensive tackles Travonte Valentine and Trey Lealaimatafao no longer on the LSU squad, fans have been worried about the depth up front on the defensive line heading into the season. Junior defensive tackle Christian Lacouture believes despite the departures of the two tackles, the LSU defensive line still has the chance to have an impressive season. “Honestly I believe we have the chance to have a great year,” he said. “With Coach Orgeron and Coach Steele coming in I really believe is going to benefit us up front on the defensive line in addition to the entire defense as a whole. There are some similarities in terms of schemes from last year, but some new stuff has been added as well. “The goal is to be competitive for a playoff berth and if we continue at this base I believe we have the chance to accomplish just that.” Starting all 13

Teuhema excited to be reunited with older brother

BATON ROUGE—Maea Teuhema’s mom Liliani isn’t the only person happy her sons are reunited on the football field. The LSU fan base has been waiting for this reunion for two years. The massive offensive guard from Keller, Texas is a freshman on the 2015 squad, rejoining his brother Sione who in nine games last year recorded a pair of sacks and seven total tackles. Arguably the nation’s top offensive lineman for the Class of 2015, Maea Teuhema was rated as the nation’s top-ranked offensive guard and 29th-best overall player in the country by Rivals.com Now on campus with the Tigers, the younger Teuhema is excited to get started on a new career in the purple and gold. “I’m at left guard right now,” he said. “At Keller High School I played right tackle. The transition has been a lot easier because at the Under Armour game they had me at guard so I wasn’t coming
