LSU running back Leonard Fournette has taken out massive insurance policies in the event of injury, CBS reports.

Fournette, 21, is one of the most heavily insured college football players ever, covered for a total of $20 million—$10 million in total disability for a career-ending injury, and $10 million for “circumstances that would lead to him falling from his projected NFL draft spot.”

“I don't think about it,” Fournette told CBS Sports of the policies. “This is the second time I'm actually talking about it. I leave everything in God's hands.”

The junior running back is projected as a high first-round pick next year after rushing for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns as a sophomore.
