Cowboys rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne had an electronic billboard put up in Baton Rouge, thanking LSU fans. The billboard, which is on I-10 near College Drive on the way to Tiger Stadium, shows Claiborne in his LSU uniform with the words: Thank you Tiger fans. Mo.
“I was just trying to find a way that I could give back to the fans,” Claiborne said Monday. “The fans at LSU are great. So I sat down with my agent and tried to think of something, and we just started throwing out certain things. That was one of the things that stuck out for me.”
Claiborne was an honorary captain for Saturday night’s 41-3 victory over Washington. He said he received positive feedback from the fans for the billboard.
“Everybody loved it,” he said. “They were pumped up about it. …I just know those guys help us when we’re in Tiger Stadium. It doesn’t matter what’s happening: They’re always there cheering us on and pumping us up.”
Claiborne said he does not know how much the billboard cost. He told his agent, Bus Cook, to pay whatever it cost.
