Woman in viral LSU dancing video has local connection

OK, we’ve all seen the video of the LSU football players doing the ‘Get the Gat’ dance in the White House.

The video has been shared on social media literally thousands of times and the video has millions of views on Facebook and Twitter.

But did you know that the woman dancing in the video with LSU football players has local ties?

The woman seen dancing in the video with Tigers’ players is Gemi Bordelon. She is the wife of Lockport native, former LSU football player and Bollinger CEO Ben Bordelon.

The couple have been married for many years and the Bordelon’s remain well connected to the LSU football community.

LSU won the National Championship, and undoubtedly, that viral video will forever remain a small piece of the Tigers’ journey — to the title, to the White House and beyond.

And much like other pieces of LSU’s season, it was someone with local roots part of it all.
