This week's New Orleans VooDoo Athlete of the Week is Leonard Fournette of St. Augustine. He already has an accomplished resume with many more yards and touchdowns to come. In fact, Fournette could be the best player to ever hail from the city of New Orleans.
Fournette stands 6'1" and weighs 232 pounds. He's rushed for 4,400 yards in two seasons with the Purple Knights, and, he's only a junior.
Fournette says he's received over 100 letters from recruiters, but he doesn't care to read them: "When the mail comes, I give it to my father."
Fournette is already being pursued by LSU and Alabama, but he says his decision will wait until his senior season. His mom told him that academics come first.
"The question she always asked is 'What do you want to do after football?' " Fournette says. "So, its grades first."
Fournette says he wants to be an engineer. But for now, Leonard Fournette of St. Aug, is this week's New Orleans VooDoo Athlete of the Week.
