Coach O Day

Apparently the 2019 LSU football season has made an LSU fan out of the leader of the free world.

President Donald Trump made a phone call to Larose native and LSU coach Ed Oregon this past week during Governor John Bel Edwards' trip to The White House for COVID-19 response. 

This news was first reported in The Advocate in Baton Rouge.

Knowing Gov. Edwards and Orgeron are close friends, President Trump asked the Governor to put Coach O on the line.

The two chatted - much like they did after LSU won the National Championship in January. The President has complimented Orgeron multiple times since LSU's National Championship win, calling him a "great coach" and a "great leader."

President Trump said he hopes to attend LSU's game with Alabama in 2020 in Tiger Stadium.
