LSU football visits flood victims in Louisiana

  Members of the LSU football team visited Celtic Studios Thursday to spend time with flood victims.

In the wake of last weekend's devastating flood in Louisiana that displaced many residents and has been classified as the worst United States weather disaster since Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012, the LSU football program visited victims stationed at Celtic Media Centre in Baton Rouge on Thursday.

Here, players and coaches interacted with fans and community members of all ages, signed autographs, played games and provided much-needed positive support for all those affected by the devastation. Celtic Media Centre is about a 15-minute drive from where the Tigers play their home games in Baton Rouge.

LSU's usual SEC foes have also shown a great deal of support for LSU and the state of Louisiana. Alabama basketball coach Avery Johnson donated food and supplies to flood victims earlier this week and South Carolina announced that it would be collecting supplies and sending it to LSU to distribute to the community.

Early Saturday morning, LSU tweeted its gratefulness to the Gamecocks after two truckloads of supplies arrived courtesy of South Carolina.
