Leonard Fournette is a headline-maker right now. He's regularly setting, and then breaking, records at LSU and he's got nearly everyone in the college football world convinced he's already won the Heisman Trophy. But while Fournette has been racking up the yards and the touchdowns and the accolades, he's focused on something that doesn't have anything to do with football at all; his family. Fournette, who grew up in New Orleans, doesn't simply play football for himself. He plays football for his parents, for his siblings, his teammates and, most importantly, his daughter. In the end, it's that drive, and that support system, that has Fournette breaking tackles and barreling into the end zone every Saturday. Click through the gallery to see some of Fournette's best moments with his family and learn more about the group that pushes the LSU sophomore standout every time he takes a handoff. (Instagram)
