Mo Isom is Trying Out for Kicker at LSU Today
Not Polynesian but they refer to Polys at the end of article. I thought it humorous to note. Interesting story if this girl actually makes it.
That attractive young lady towering over Tyrann Mathieu above is LSU Soccer goalie and star of YouTube’s “Meaux vs.” (which is kinda like “Shaq vs” except you can actually understand what she is saying) series is set to try out as a kicking specialist on the LSU football team today. Isom, who claims to have kicked field goals as far a 51 yards in practice and who once dropped in a modest 90 yard goal in a real live soccer match, has been planning this endeavor for a while now.
I’ve been training since January of this year! I had it in my mind, and I approached some of the players I know, and they were so enthusiastic. And then I talked to some of the coaching staff, because of course I wanted to be in their good graces. I was expecting to see some resistance but all the doors were open to me, and everybody has been so excited, which is so great. I started working out with the team some this summer, which wound up helping as some cross-training for soccer, and I kept working on my kicking in my spare time. Then this fall I went through the walk-on tryouts, just to kind of see what it was like, and I kicked a 51-yarder. Obviously I was going to finish up in soccer, but I will be back to try out again this spring.
It would just be a fantastic way to spend my last year as a Tiger. And I love the guys on the team. I just think it would be a really special experience.
Should she make the team, look for Les Miles to follow protocol and recruit a large mulletted Samoan to monitor Isom during the post game showers.
