pretty excited," Lapeyrolerie said. "I went out there to earn my spot, and I was very happy."
Lapeyrolerie was named an Offense Defense All American after partaking in an Offense Defense camp over the summer at Oglethorpe University. As a result, he was invited to participate in the Offense Defense bowl week activities surrounding the New Year's Day Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla.

It happens often, and the South Cobb sophomore's grown used to it. But once he pronounces his surname of French descent correctly it's "lap ur REL er ee" people have a much easier time with it.
