BATON ROUGE, LA — For the third straight year, head coach Les Miles is inviting the LSU student body to attend football practice as the Tigers will host “LSU Student Appreciation Day” at the Charles McClendon Practice Facility on Thursday, April 3.
LSU students will be able to watch football practice from 4 to 6 p.m. followed by a meet and greet with the players and coaches after practice. To be admitted to practice, students must present their LSU ID at the entrance of the practice facility.
“This is a great event and something that I look forward to doing each spring,” Miles said. “I think our players enjoy having their classmates come out and watch practice to get an inside glimpse of just what goes on out here as much as the student body does. It’s a fun event for everyone involved.
“I say it all the time, we have great student support and our student body makes a difference on a Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. This is just a small way of saying thanks and letting them know how much we appreciate their support.”
When coming to practice on Thursday, students should park in Lot K, which is across Skip Bertman Drive from the football operations building. Students are asked to enter through the front doors of the football operations building.
Thursday’s practice will be the final one before LSU hosts the annual National L-Club Spring Game at 1 p.m. on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. Admission to the spring game is free.
