Wearing a seersucker suit with purple pinstripes and a pocket square, LSU QB Joe Burrow certainly looked the party on Thursday evening as he made his way down the red carpet at the College Football Awards event in Atlanta.

“It’s been a blast, I’m excited to see all these guys,” Burrow told reporters. “It’s been a blast hanging out with them.”

Asked about his outfit, Burrow nodded proudly, “Little pinstripe, little pocket square.”

He said the Louisiana community means the world to him as LSU fans welcomed him like a “true son.”

“I just try to do everything I can to repay them,” Burrow said.

Burrow was asked about a couple teammates, and coach Ed Orgeron being named Coach of the Year.

“Nobody deserves it more than Coach O,” Burrow said. “I don’t think he gets enough credit for what he does for our team, and it’s good to see him get recognition.”

Burrow said he could envision this kind of undefeated season happening because he knew the work they put in, and the kinds of players and coaches LSU had coming back.

“Everyone else might be surprised, but we weren’t surprised by it,” Burrow said.
