What's in a name? Sometimes Miles of letters

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

LSU signed one of the top recruiting classes in the country and now looks forward to seeing results on the field.  One of the many needs addressed by the team was at defensive tackle where the Tigers landed two highly regarded players.  Travonte Valentine out of south Florida and Trey Lealaimatafao from San Antonio.

Lealaimatafao is expected to play right away, but he may not have as many challenges on the field as most people have pronouncing his name, expecialltyLes Miles, who has decided to simply call him Trey "L."

Miles says, "Trey L, because I believe it is Lealaimatafao, and until I get that right, and I'm going to try for a couple of years, but you guys will have that one to throw at me just at any point in time that you need to.  But for right now I'm going to call him Trey L.  Again, 6 foot 1, 300 pounder out of Earl Warren High School in San Antonio, Texas, four star recruit.  A USA Army All American.  Again, in San Antonio, 7 sacks, 3 forced fumbles.  He would remind you of Drake Nevis, a little taller, a little wider, maybe a little faster.  But he has a very high motor and a real acceleration on the field."

Perhaps once Trey L gets a uniform number, Coach Miles will call him by number, but it may never be by name.
