BATON ROUGE - The Relief-4-Blue fund has been established to assist the family of LSU running back Alfred Blue who recently suffered a devastating loss when a fire destroyed their home and all of their belongings.

Blue has three younger siblings ranging in ages from 4 to 15. His grandmother also lived in the home with his mom.

Under NCAA rules, LSU is permitted to accept financial gifts and manage an account to assist the Blue family.  Those interested in assisting Alfred Blue and his family can make contributions to the Tiger Athletic Foundation by going to www.lsutaf.org.

Per NCAA rules, all contributions of any kind must go through this fund. Donors need to be aware that financial contributions to this fund are not tax deductible and not eligible for LSU Priority Points.

Blue, a sophomore from Boutte, La., is coming off his best game as a Tiger, rushing for a team-high 72 yards and one touchdown in LSU's 35-7 win over Kentucky last week. Blue currently ranks third on the team with 148 yards rushing and three touchdowns.
