#StraightFromTheBush - LSU’S DEFENSE MAY BE ITS BEST HOPE FOR 2018. MEET THE PLAYERS AND COACH LEADI


Rashard Lawrence and Breiden Fehoko

This is from an article written and posted by www.225batonrouge.com. You can reference the entire article here.

Below is an excerpt concerning Breiden Fehoko who is the son of Vili, a class of 1983 grad, and Linda Lee, a native of Fiji. Breiden, according to an article that ran after this one, is projected to start @ Nose Guard / Defensive Tackle this season.

Here is the excerpt:

"A big piece to that success is Lawrence, who will likely draw constant double teams this fall, leaving more opportunities for his fellow linemen. The most highly anticipated is junior Breiden Fehoko.

The Texas Tech transfer, who matches Lawrence’s 6-foot-3, 300-pound frame, has been the talk of the town since making it on campus last summer. Fehoko had started every game in his career as a Red Raider, registering 38 tackles (7.5 for a loss), a pair of sacks and six quarterback hurries.

He was forced to sit out last season due to the NCAA’s transfer policy, but several players noted that he was one of the toughest matchups to go against in practice. Now he’s more ready than ever to take the field for the first time in Tiger Stadium.

“[Coming to LSU] was a no-brainer,” Fehoko says. “For a team like LSU with the history they had and just the level of competition they play in the SEC West, it’s something that drew my attention. It was a no-brainer for me at first with Coach O, Coach Pete [Jenkins], Coach [Dennis] Johnson and Coach Aranda and those guys. I wanted to be around those guys and I wanted to learn from those guys.”

As Fehoko is answering the question, White shouts to him from across the field.

“Tell him you were excited to play with Devin White and Greedy Williams! Tell him!”

Despite having his interview face on, Fehoko can’t hold back his chuckle.

“Yes, I’m excited to play with Devin White and Greedy Williams, too,” he says shaking his head.

It’s another sign of the camaraderie this team has built through all the ups and down of the past year together. Each position group works hand-in-hand with each other, echoing Orgeron’s go-to motto: One team. One heartbeat."
