Rohan Davey congratulates Joe Burrow on breaking LSU passing record
Rohan Davey knows that records are meant to be broken. The former LSU quarterback congratulated current Tigers QB Joe Burrow on breaking the school record for passing yards in a single season.
Davey posted his congratulatory note to Facebook:
Huge congratulations to my guy Joe on breaking the single season passing record. I’ve had the honor and privilege of holding this record for 18yrs.
Few things makes me prouder than being the quarterback and leader of the 2001 record setting team! That season and team many believe laid the foundation for the Rebirth of this great program and the greatness we are witnessing today! Congrats to Coach O,the staff and entire team! Joe it has been a pleasure watching you lead and play the quarterback position! Nothing but love and continued success my dude!! See you in New Orleans!!! Geauxxxxxxx Tigers!!
Davey attached a couple of photos of the two to his post:
Davey set the record of 3,347 yards in Jimbo Fisher’s offense during the 2001 season. Burrow entered Saturday’s Ole Miss, game 10 of LSU’s 2019 campaign, needing just 150 yards to break the record. Burrow became the record-holder with an 18-yard completion to Ja’Marr Chase in the first half of the game. He finished the night with 489 passing yards, putting him at 3,687 through 10 games. Burrow is sure to be in for another big passing game when LSU takes on Arkansas in Week 13.
