“Coming into LSU, I had the least expectations in the class… I wasn’t expecting much for myself,” said Duplantis.
This all changed after the end of his first semester at LSU, he felt he could be a real player in the SEC. Every year he tweaked little things in his swing. But he’s the first to tell you, at the end of the day, it’s all about the mindset you have. He talks about his twitter relationship with Dr. Eddy Furness.
He talks about why he was a little mad they had announced he had tied the LSU all-time-hits record. He started to feel the pressure the day before he broke the record.
“I just need to focus on the things I can control,” Duplanits on the day he broke the record.
“I never really talked with the Mets before they drafted me,”
On draft day, he didn’t even see his name flash on the screen. He found out through a “Congrats” text from Jake Magnum and he went to twitter to confirm it.
