Mo Isom Welcome To Try Again In August, Says Les Miles

LSU Tigers women's soccer goalie and football hopeful Mo Isom can give the gridiron another shot during August workouts, Les Miles confirmed after practice Tuesday. Isom had a three-day tryout, during which she banked multiple 50-yard field goals and was able to pin kickoffs inside the five-yard line, but there's an obvious limitation she'll have to find a way to work around:

"She's a great person but there's some things she can't do and she knows it," [Miles] said. "We go to kicking off into the corner, we count on our kicker making some tackles and it's just not something I'm comfortable she's ready to do. It's one of those spots you really can't put a person that cannot tackle."

Obvious not because SHE'S A GIRL, but because she hasn't been a football player for very long. Miles said there are currently four kickers on the roster who'd rank ahead of just about anybody, star goalie or otherwise. Drew Alleman is one of the country's best field goal kickers, and James Hairston came on during the last nine games of the season as a very good kickoff specialist.

Does LSU need an onside kick specialist? Feel like they'd use an onside kick specialist all the time.
