Offensive lineman Chasen Hines switched his jersey number at the suggestion of LSU Director of Athletic Training Jack Marucci from No. 52 to No. 57.
Yes, his jersey will now read “Hines 57.”
The Heinz company, for which Heinz 57 has become a powerful marketing tool over the years, even got in on the joke and offered to send a care package to Hines. Even if that might not sit so well with the NCAA.
