Andre Anthony hasn’t played in a football game that counted in almost 33 months, not since Edna Karr lost to Neville High in the Class 4A state championship game in December 2015.
Soon after that, the New Orleans native’s dream of playing for LSU went off course in the worst possible ways: Academic ineligibility cost him the 2016 season before a season-ending injury last August.
But Anthony hopes to finally put those obstacles in his rearview mirror when No. 25 LSU opens this season against No. 8 Miami on Sunday night in Arlington, Texas.
