Inside LSU’s $28 million dollar locker room
Louisiana State University recently unveiled its renovated Football Operations Center. The whole renovation cost $28 million.
Here’s what’s inside…
The locker room has sleep pods for every football player. Each pod has a chair that folds out into a bed, similar to a first-class airline seat. It has charging ports for electronics and ventilated drawers to store shoes.
Overhead lockers store personal items and can charge the concussion sensors on the helmets. In addition to the revamped lockers, there’s a team lounge with a mini theater and games.
And a nutritional facility that provides healthy food options for all student-athletes. There’s also a wall of fame honoring LSU football alumni.
NFL player and LSU alum Tyrann Mathieu donated $1 million to the renovation. The new building was designed by HNTB Architecture. HNTB also designed multimillion-dollar athletic centers for colleges including the University of Kentucky and the University of Illinois.
