but I also read just make sure that you're doing it once a week and if you are doing it more than that just make sure that you moisturize Thanks Twitter wants to know if you are washing that's the question you're taking this process second-by-second yes what are you doing day after day second-by-second to prove that you deserve a spot on this roster putting in something that nobody else is willing to do if that's staying up a lot extra having an extra workout even dropping like going to the field and working on my drops is I just want to better myself every day so so you're known as a class clown an outgoing guy in this root Kentucky class how are you using that or would you say that you're using that to get through this process yes I would I mean I have a saying that I have going around real greasy and it's you know it's a term I use just as you know meaning good or you know just an exaggeration or something but I just try to you know try to lighten up the mood when things get serious so let's be real how much does this opportunity mean to you yes you can be fun and you know have a good time but this is like such a huge deal how do you how do you you know is it behind closed doors that you kind of focus in on that and take it a little more seriously yes I do but I mean honestly I'm very nervous being here I'm very how just excited I'm happy I'm just taking it all and it's like it's almost like an offer for me because I really didn't think I would know made it this far so every day I just try to stay calm very energetic and happy and what is that one moment gonna be for you when you can finally breathe and just you know just feel like you've done it after freezies after pieces when I get that beautiful call I'm more relaxed that's when I finally relax but other than that we 10 toes down awesome thank you so much thank you Trudeau theists White may live in New York playing for the Buffalo Bills but when he needs his hair cut he makes sure to pay a visit to his barber all the way back in Baton Rouge TJ Malvo started cutting White's hair when he was playing at LSU he even traveled with him to the 2017 NFL Draft after his move Malvo was forced to start from square one but he was eager to build his clientele and with the help from Vernon Norwood and Kenny Hilliard malthus business blew up like he never thought possible a little over four years later Malvo had secured dozens of high-profile athletes as clients they helped promote him and he was able to open his own shop in July of 2017 he named it draft picks barbershop inspired by former LSU defensive tackle davon Godchaux he's always say man get me Travis D fresh give me drafted first so and then stick and he was saying and he would put it on snapchat Malvo says he continues to get calls and texts from his former clients even once they have moved on to the professional level social media and the influence of his athlete clients have made all the difference in Malvo success so much so that he has an entire wall in his shop dedicated to every athlete who has trusted him to keep them draft day fresh both on and off the field sophomore Aliyah Andrews last name may already be engraved in the hearts of Tiger fans but her first name is her own and she's working to prove that to herself and to everyone else by leaving her own mark on the LSU softball program yeah I think you know she just continues to get better and better she's a special talent she's a special player and I think her confidence is just going up and up and you know I think she's just at the tip of the iceberg of what she's capable of after earning her team's first SEC Player of the Week title for the season the outfielder plans to use that as momentum to push herself even harder coach called me in class and I didn't answer except that was a trick so but then she texted me about it and I went and looked and I was really surprised it was really happy all my teammates were so supportive I just knew after getting that I couldn't settle for that I can't be satisfied her never enough attitude can be seen as a reflection of her older sister AJ who she's looked up to and also favors on the softball field they both play very fearlessly I think it's amazing to have somebody that will dive all of the outfield the way they both do so I know Lea probably learned a lot of that from watching her sister and what a great role model to have someone as talented as AJ Andrews AJ also played softball for the Tigers from 2011 to 2015 where she was the 15th all-american in program history it's great knowing that she's here she was just so supportive and she told me never be satisfied so she's just great to have her here I'm really lucky to have her Aliyah is certainly showcasing her own talents as a leadoff hitter for the Tigers her ability to place the ball accordingly is essential for her to be able to get on base for the rest of the lineup I mean I think she's gonna be one of the best players in SCC when it's all said and done so whether it's you know tomorrow or next year or whenever it is after a long year of hard work in patience three LSU football transfers will finally get the chance to showcase their talent in front of hundreds of fans at the national L Club spring game last year the first time I didn't play football for a whole year it hurt but just being around these great fans and my teammates and coaches it really helped me so I'm just I can't wait to be in del Valle and get the full experience both junior wide receiver Jonathan Giles and junior defensive end Brayden pehoe Co transferred from Texas Tech while sophomore tight end Thaddeus Moss transferred from NC State LSU recruits the best of the best when it comes to high school so every single day you're going against the best of the best learning a new approach to football and proving that they're capable of playing at an SEC level was something that each of them has and will continue to have to prove to their coaches and the LSU fan base they each said that playing for this team gives them the opportunity to show that they can compete with the best I feel like I wanted to get better at what I did as a player so you know add some longevity to my career as a football player and I think LSU was the best school that provided me that with technique and off the field purposes moving up to an SEC program is a challenge in itself but focusing on what an amazing opportunity this is and the passion that comes with being an LSU Tiger has acted as an inspiration for each athlete to push a little harder I miss being the fan type laser they are and then just devalue me who wouldn't want to play in value after watching their teammates travel to away games walk down Victory Hill and play in last season's games without them these Tigers will finally get a little taste of what they've been craving you [Applause]
