  • COLUMN:Fitzpatrick drawing major...

    It all came out of the blue for Chris Fitzpatrick.

    Check that. It all came out of the purple last fall when Anderson County football coach Mark Peach handed his junior center that first recruiting letter.

    It was LSU.

    Yes, that LSU. As in Les Miles, Saturday night in Baton Rouge, Geaux Tigers and all that goes with it.

    Purdue started mailing. So did Northwestern, Boston College and Western Kentucky. Kentucky has also begun to call.

    It seems like a lot of hullabaloo over a guy who is only noticed when he messes up.
