Tyrann Mathieu

Posted: October 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

He was the most dominant player in college football, and he didn’t even play Quarterback. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2011 (award for best player). No team wanted to play Louisiana State University (LSU) because of Tyrann Mathieu’s skills. Everything was going great for him and his team… Until he violated the LSU substance abuse policy… Again. After so many chances and the opportunity to be the best player and lead your team to a championship, he wasted it all just for using drugs.

Before the 2012 season started, LSU dismissed Tyrann Mathieu from the team for all the repeated violations he made. He was not kicked out of the university and the coach was going to let him back on the team the following season. All he had to do was control his substance abuse problem and he could have the life that many people dream of everyday. He enrolled in the fall semester and was seeking drug treatment so he could be back on the team the following year.

Fast forward to October 25, 2012. Tyrann Mathieu and three former LSU players were arrested for simple possession of marijuana. This little mistake of his might have sealed his fate with the team and will cost him millions of dollars he could have had in the NFL.
