NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - John Bel Edwards once had a proud career as a quarterback at Amite High before eventually ending up in Baton Rouge as Governor of Louisiana. On Wednesday, he congratulated a fellow Warrior on taking a direct path to the state’s capital city.

Wide Receiver Devonta Lee announced his signing with LSU on Wednesday’s National Signing Day and was quickly congratulated by Edwards via Twitter:

“Hold that Tiger,” Edwards tweeted. “Congrats to Amite’s own Devonta Lee on signing to play football with LSU! Donna and I are looking forward to the many great things you will do on and off the field for #LSU and Louisiana. #TangiProud #NationalSigningDay
