Seth Fruge wasn’t a star at LSU. He didn’t even have a scholarship when he showed up on campus in 2009 but he lasted all four years as a special teams player, earning an SEC championship ring and a spot in the BCS National Championship game.
During the holidays, someone broke into his Shreveport, LA home and stole his conference title ring, Outback bowl ring, the BCS National Championship game watch and other awards and property.
On Monday night, Fruge took to Facebook to chastise the thief.
“You stole a lot more than the couple dollars you can get from melting down the crystal and silver. You stole a reminder of the blood, sweat, and tears over 5 years that I put in with brothers from every race/color,” he wrote. “You stole away an award for the thousands of hours of time and relentless effort put in by every player, coach, and trainer that it took to earn them.”
The theft caught the attention of area media and so far, Fruge’s post has been shared more than 36,000 times by readers from all over the country.
Fruge posted pictures of the stolen memorabilia, hoping perhaps that the thief would try to sell them and someone would recognize the items.
So far, no arrests have been made.
