Louisiana officially has a road named for Joe Burrow
For years to come, LSU fans will fondly think of Joe Burrow any time they want to take a stroll down memory lane. Now, they can actually cruise down Burrow Road.
Scottie Hunter of WAFB shared that there is now a Highland/Burrow intersection in Baton Rouge. The Channel 9 reporter posted a brief video (below) on Twitter showing a close look at the Burrow Road street sign.

It likely won’t be the last tribute in Louisiana we see for the Heisman Trophy-winner who helped lead LSU to an incredible 15-0 season and College Football Playoff national championship last season. Earlier this year he added No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick to his list of honors and achievements.
