Archie Manning says LSU QB Joe Burrow is “tough, knows the game”

The Manning Passing Academy brings some of the best arms in college football to the Nicholls State campus in Thibodaux.   LSU QB Joe Burrow is taking part in the event this year as he gets ready to lead a Tiger team that has a lot more expectations around them in 2019 than they did last year. 

 The great Archie Manning dropped by Sports Talk with Kristian and guest host Mike Detillier to talk about the camp and says Burrow has improved so much from last season.

“I can tell you, he’s tough and knows the game,” said Manning.  “I watched him throw the ball yesterday, he’s like a different guy. Joe Brady told me he’s made a big step.”

Burrow started all 13 games in 2018 and led LSU to a 10-3 record. He finished with 2,894 yards passing with 16 touchdowns and only five interceptions. Burrow also made plenty of plays with his feet, adding another 399 rushing yards and seven scores.
