Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette is giving back to one of the students at his alma mater, LSU, by covering her tuition for the upcoming school year.

She had been a TOPS financial aid recipient, but as she explained, that program is only designed to cover four years of schooling. So, in addition to the two jobs that she was working, she was hoping that people in the social media world could help her cover the cost of tuition. The tweet caught the attention of Fournette on Tuesday and he let Ms. Lowsoo know that he would cover the cost.
