Burrow Road

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at Louisiana State Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

The legend of Joe Burrow continues to grow.

The latest example comes from Burrow having a Louisiana road named after him, according to WAFB reporter Scottie Hunter.

It’s very rare for a road to be renamed after a college player, but Burrow just enjoyed one of the greatest seasons a college athlete has ever accomplished: An unbeaten record, a Heisman Trophy, a national championship, and he became the No. 1 overall pick in an NFL Draft.

Burrow could never play another down of football, and his 2019 season would still be regarded as one of the greatest ever by a college athlete in any sport, and he’ll forever be a legend in Louisiana.

The Bengals obviously hope Burrow has saved his best for the pros as he gets set to take over the franchise and lead them to the top of the NFL world.

Here’s to hoping Joe Burrow is just getting started.
