Travonte Valentine is now practicing with LSU again and suffice to say, there are some high hopes for him from the fanbase. Seems like there are some high hopes from the coaching staff as well, with Les Miles saying that in Valentine’s time practicing back in 2014, they had trouble even double teaming him - http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_6cc25e28-5fee-11e6-a7d0-635e7945e35a.html

In one of Les Miles’ all time pressers, he discussed the Leonard Fournette and Garrett Brumfield "slap boxing" video that got out and then went on to talk about Snapchat, which he doesn’t have.
