Current NFL Star Trains At University Of Wyoming In Offseason
Fournette is former Louisana State University (LSU) standout at running back, so people have been wondering why he is in Laramie? Even his coach, Doug Marrone, was curious why he chose UW.
"When he told me about Wyoming, I was like, 'Wyoming?'" Marrone told ESPN Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine. "He might be the first player ever -- nothing against Wyoming -- but the first player ever ... I’m like, 'Wyoming? I mean, why are you going to Wyoming?'
Leonard didn't have a great 2018 season, he was suspended, got out of shape and was ridiculed for his actions in the last game of the season. So, Leonard wanted to get away and be secluded almost, fewer distractions from media in Laramie. The NFL running back chose UW to train this offseason because of his relationship with UW's Director of Sports Performance, Ben Iannacchione. Ben was the strength and conditioning coach at LSU during Leonard's time there and they developed a great relationship. Fournette was at LSU from 2014-2016.
