Meet your new favorite college football player, Lewis Neal. Not only did the senior defensive end lead LSU in sacks last season with 8 and set a school weight room record cleaning 391 pounds, but he also owns an investment firm, smartphone app, and hair salon that gives free haircuts to all military personnel, law enforcement officers, and firefighters.
From The Advocate:
“I just wanted to do something positive for the community, just give back and show our appreciation,” Neal said. “We want to have some positive things going around. There’s so much negativity going around. You need some positive things going viral.”
Neal spent the last three years of college trading on the Foreign Exchange market, or commonly referred to as Forex, the world’s largest market with a turnover of about $4 trillion a day. He declined to reveal his profit, but it was enough to buy into that hair salon and start his own investment first.
“Very successful,” he smiled.
So far, the NCAA either hasn’t found issues with Neal’s business ventures or are just completely unaware altogether. Fingers crossed they let the kid be to continue crushing life. That, or this is a major conspiracy and last ditch effort by the NCAA to show the world that they shouldn’t have to pay collegiate athletes because they have ample amount of time and opportunity to go out and make bank on their own. Like we’re going to buy into Neal being an ordinary player and not the otherworldly exception. I’m not letting you pull that fast one on us, NCAA.
But seriously, this dude seems like the real deal and an absolute force on and off the field. Nothing but respect for Lewis Neal..
