(Photo by Brett Duke, Nola.com | The Times-Picayune) ORG XMIT: LAORS101 (BRETT DUKE) Print Email By Andrew Lopez, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Email the author | Follow on Twitter on December 02, 2016 at 12:38 PM Former John Curtis, USC and NFL football player Joe McKnight inspired numbers of kids in the New Orleans area throughout his football career. In a tweet posted on Thursday, Tyrann Mathieu, who prepped at St. Augustine before playing at LSU and then in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals, expressed that. "Everybody in the world wanted to be Reggie Bush, us in New Orleans wanted to run the ball like Joe McKnight," Mathieu wrote. Joe McKnight killed: Remembering the New Orleans standout's career Joe McKnight killed: Remembering the New Orleans standout's career McKnight was shot about 3 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 1) at the intersection of Behrman Highway and Holmes Boulevard in Terrytown. LSU linebacker Duke Riley, who played at Curtis from 2009-12, took to social media to try and sum up his feelings on the loss of someone he called, "the reason I wanted to be good in football." Joe McKnight shooting: What we know so far Joe McKnight, the ex-NFL player, was shot to death Thursday afternoon (Dec. 1). Here's what we know so far Here's the text of what Riley wrote: "I swear I can go on and on about this tragedy and what Joe really meant to me. He was my reason. The reason I wanted to be a John Curtis Patriot. The reason I wanted to be good in football. I just wanted to always be like #4. The reason #4 will forever be my favorite number. It just doesn't make since (sic) to me, it's like I had so much to talk to you about and never really got the chance or time to actually have a real sit down with you.. The only time I got to really talk to you was at a Curtis game or on a video game through a mic. And maybe it was because you never really said much, you were always about business and getting your work done. We trained at TDA together, we played the game all the time together, I have so many memories I can talk about. I just remember you telling me "If you don't want to go 1st round, the (sic) don't play the game." I remember on the mic through the video game you telling me and a few other people how deeply you loved your son. It just hurts to see someone you always looked up to, came from the same stomping grounds, and someone who motivated you every time you saw them just to be taken away so easy and senseless. We weren't related at all, but you meant everything to me. Your legacy will forever be remembered, and I'm not posting this for likes or comments. As a matter of fact I don't want anyone to comment or like.. I always just wanted to tell you that I Love You man, for giving someone like me hope. Showing me that if you really take the game serious and have respect for what the game brings, you can do and be whoever you want. p.s. I still want to be you, that will never chance.. Fly High My Brother. Heroes get remembered, but Legends never Die."

    The guy that shot him was released without being charged.
  3. Not exactly. But that he is Okie's man crush and she has no say in it....

    I'd take the drunk over the perv any day.
  5. This. Had a chance to go watch them stomp Temple tomorrow but had to pass.
  6. This is why I love this place.
  7. Your argument rests on a rather shaky premise: that the reason Alleva decided to go with Orgeron over others was purely financial and that the primary consideration was salary for the hire. What is more likely is that Alleva (as reports indicate) was turned off by Herman and Armstrong telling him they had a deal one day then telling them there was no deal yet the following morning. Additionally, maybe Alleva simply felt that the program was closer to making a playoff run by NOT tearing the program down and rebuilding from scratch.

    Wow. Former #1 prospect from Louisiana. Don't know what to say other than I hope his loved ones can find peace one day.

    Did she jump the gun?
  10. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    When I 1st read the news earlier today, my thought was that Brennan wanted to confirm that the love was indeed a 2 way street.
