Travis Etienne the star running back from Clemson is from Louisiana and that is apparently rubbing LSU fans the wrong way. Etienne is from Jennings, Louisiana and they will be facing the hometown team in the National Championship.
Donnetta Etienne, Travis’ Mother tweeted Monday that her family has received “all kind of threats” in the weeks before the championship game on Jan. 13.
We from Louisiana. We are getting all kind of threats. Sad but true. God is in control. Nothing can penetrate the blood of Jesus..We are blessed‼️—

In an interview with Scott Keepfer of the Greenville News, Etienne’s Mother was given 24 hours to move out of Louisiana.
“One person said we had less than 24 hours to get out of Louisiana,” Donnetta said. “I didn’t take it serious, I just got off social media.
“LSU fans are kind of over the top. We have nothing against LSU; it’s not LSU, it’s LSU fans. They have a big desire for LSU to win the game. The only thing I didn’t like about it is it’s not Travis playing LSU, it’s Clemson playing LSU. But LSU fans started going crazy and we haven’t even played the game yet.”
This is wild. I hope her family is protected! May God Bless her.
