Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu showed some love to his alma mater on Saturday night
His career at LSU didn’t come to a happy ending, however for Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu, he never forgets where he came from. On Saturday night, he showed his generosity to the LSU football program by giving back.
He made a $1 million donation to LSU on Saturday night, it was announced to the crowd assembled for the Alabama-LSU matchup. Mathieu is on the bye week this week with the Cardinals.
For Mathieu, he was appreciate of the response he got back from LSU fans. He may be a beast on the field but off the field Mathieu continues to show his big heart and personality.
Looking back three years, it is amazing how much Mathieu has grown as a person. Many didn’t give him a shot to make it after being kicked off the LSU football team.
The Cardinals gave him a shot and he has re-paid them in spades. Now he is re-paying the LSU football program.
You can’t help but be happy for the young man. Even though he has struggled this year coming back from a torn ACL and now dealing with another injury which will keep him out at least three weeks, he continues to shine off the field.
Mathieu has become a pillar of his current community in the Phoenix-area and continues to be for his college family as well. Birdgang should be very proud to have a player of his stature but an even better person such as Mathieu to be representing the Cardinals.
