Former LSU star RB Leonard Fournette had a huge game for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon, rushing 28 times for an impressive 181 yards and two touchdowns.
However, nearly half of those yards came on an incredible 90-yard touchdown run, making Fournette the youngest player in NFL history to ever run for a touchdown that long.
Now, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, wants to honor Fournette, and the Jaguars tweeted a picture on Wednesday afternoon of them sending the rookie back’s game-worn jersey to the Hall of Fame:

That’s a great honor for Fournette, and right now, he has to be considered among the favorites to win the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award, too.
