Why is Joe Burrow a Louisiana favorite ?
Joe Burrow, otherwise known as Joe Burreaux, is easily Louisiana's favorite adopted son of all time. His story reads like an epic... small-town kid works hard and makes the football team at The Ohio State University where he doesn't get the starting position. So, said hard-working and humble quarterback joins the transfer portal and makes his way to the swamps of Louisiana where he must have felt like a stranger in a strange land... Baton Rouge, the home of the LSU Fighting Tigers and stronghold of the SEC. After battling his way to the top, Burrow, like any epic hero, then led LSU to a National Championship in 2019.
