Leonard Fournette jersey auction raises $101,000 for flood relief

Monday November 9th, 2015

A Leonard Fournette jersey put up for auction by the running back and LSU has brought in $110,000 for South Carolina flood relief.

The jersey was worn by the Heisman front-runner when the Tigers hosted South Carolina after Hurricane Joaquin forced the team's Oct. 10 contest to be moved to Baton Rouge.

Pricing went over the six-figure mark as bidding finished on Monday, making the jersey the most expensive college football jersey sold online, but falling well behind the $250,000 paid for a game-used Tim Tebow jersey at a live auction, according to ESPN.

The auction winner also received autographs from coaches Steve Spurrier and Les Miles, and each on their respective team’s helmets.
