The state of Louisiana is still celebrating the record-breaking 2019 season of former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

If you needed any evidence to support that claim, we present “Burreaux,” a baby giraffe at the Baton Rouge Zoo who was named after the future first-overall NFL Draft pick.

The Zoo tweeted out an absolutely adorable picture of the baby giraffe running after a fan vote had been tallied.

Looks like a natural athlete to this scribe. Note the long strides. That kind of extension is rare, folks.

Burrow’s hype train is running at full speed heading into the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine. Whether he works out on the field or simply does his medicals and interviews, he’s going to be one of the biggest headliners throughout the long weekend in Indianapolis.
