Boo, whistle. That’s what I have to say today about Shreveport football star Kendrick Law’s decision to head east to play for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
As a die-hard LSU Tiger fan, I really hoped he would stay closer to home and play Death Valley for the Tigers. But he today announced his decision to sign a letter of intent to play for Nick Saban and the defending SEC champions.
I really can’t blame him too much. Alabama is a powerful football program. there is no doubt. Law had several opportunities. He has also received scholarship offers from Texas A&M, Florida State, LSU, Texas, and Arkansas.
