LSU football unveils new, expanded weight room

  Tigers players were treated with a look at their new weight room a night before fall practices started.

The annual turning of the calendar to August is widely regarded as a universal sign for football student-athletes nationwide, as it signifies the return to the practice field and renewed access to their respective program’s advanced, private training facilities.

This summer’s arrival was extra special for LSU players as they were introduced to a new, expanded weight room Wednesday night in Baton Rouge.

The unveiling was broadcasted on Facebook Live by the LSU Football account, showing the players filing into the unlit space before the lights were turned on to reveal the newly-furnished purple floor with yellow Tigers insignias on it. Last season’s team highlights screened on the room’s many monitors, which hovered above a variety of new equipment and machines.

Not a bad way to kick off fall camp, which LSU officially began Thursday morning.
