BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Tigers took the field Wednesday morning with just over three weeks to go before playing the TCU Horned Frogs.

Here's a few Quick Hits from this morning's practice:

True freshman defensive back Rickey Jefferson is a physical freak. This kid looks like a piece of iron and certainly seems to have the build to be hitting SEC ball carriers in his first season. Jefferson is listed as 5'11 and 199 pounds.

2012 WAFB-TV Warrick Dunn Award Winner (Our player of the year for the Sportsline Friday Night viewing area) Kendell Beckwith also looks very imposing. The former East Feliciana star could be swallowing up running backs from his linebacker spot and is listed at 6'3, 246 pounds.

With Stephen Rivers entering his third year with the program and true freshman Anthony Jennings making a big move in the spring, many people may have forgotten about fellow quarterback and former Penn State Nittany Lion Rob Bolden. But as he recovers from a knee injury, Bolden continues to work hard as a junior, hoping to one day get an opportunity. He saw no game action in 2012.

Running back Jeremy Hill continues to work his way back into circulation, alongside veteran backs Kenny Hilliard, Alfred Blue and massive bowling ball JC Copeland.

Coach Miles spent time again today with the offensive line. The big question is right tackle. With Vadal Alexander's absence, will Chris Hawkins start the season with the first team?

Head coach Les Miles had a fun one-on-one visit with local sportswriter Les East. Miles joked with East about the writer's bright attire and fedora hat. "Is that a New Orleans thing?" Miles asked. "Uh, sort of. I don't know where it was made," East replied. The "Mad Hatter" then said he had a hat like it. East asked the coach if he would be wearing his fedora anytime soon. Miles politely said no, "perhaps only at home and very informal places."

    LSU went back to work this week in preparation for the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame. A win would be nice, but this is also a chance to get some freshman playing time to get ready for 2018. Well it'll come in practice only. "Those guys will get more reps. So I'll give them a couple of more reps at the end of a team period. It's sending the wrong message to our football team. It's all focus on winning the game. Exactly what we did last year," said LSU Head Coach Ed Org...More >>
