This year for Halloween, one of the most popular costumes in the state of Louisiana was “The Leonard Fournette.” And who wouldn’t want to dress up like the Heisman front-runner and star of the LSU Tigers? The costume was pretty simple: LSU jersey, chinstrap-beard, and braces. Fournette even got into spirit as well and decided to don a mask of himself, on himself:

LSU quarterback Brandon Harris also rocked a mask which will be available at LSU’s home game vs. Arkansas tonight. But of course, Fournette won’t be able to profit off the masks or anything else.

It’s clear that LSU is able to keep things loose after the loss to Alabama last week. They know their season is not over yet and there is still much to play for. An SEC Championship is still possible and even a shot at the College Football Playoff is not completely gone. Also, Fournette would like to see himself in New York come December for the Heisman ceremony.

As for Fournette’s aforementioned braces, he’s ready to get them off but he just hasn’t had time recently:

Perhaps he keeps them on for the rest of the season and becomes the first Heisman winner with braces?
