The LSU football team spoke to the media for the first time this spring on Saturday afternoon, following the second of 15 practices during March.

Several Tiger veterans, including senior guard Josh Dworaczyk and defensive end Sam Montgomery, were on hand. Junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger also faced reporters for the first time since taking over as the Tigers' starter under center.

Mettenberger faced a bevy of cameras, recorders and questions, which he said is all part of taking hold of the leadership role as the team's starting quarterback.
