Olivia Dunne Celebrates LSU's Jayden Daniels Heisman Win

Jayden Daniels has received a lot of love for winning the Heisman Trophy over the weekend; including some from one of the few LSU student athletes who is more famous than him. 

LSU Gymnast and social media darling Olivia Dunne recently posted a story on her Instagram that celebrated Daniels' Heisman victory. In the story — which has since been removed, as its 24-hour window has passed — Dunne wrote, "It's always been the Tigers," alongside a photo of Daniels and former LSU quarterback and fellow Heisman winner, Joe Burrow.

It makes sense that Dunne and Daniels are supporting one another, considering that they're two of the only LSU student athletes who can empathize with each other's financial success. The duo are two of LSU's the top three NIL earners in 2023, with the third being LSU basketball star Angel Reese, who joined Dunne on Forbes' 30 Under 30' list this year.

This Instagram story isn't the first time that Dunne has shown support for Daniels and his LSU football squad. Back in October, Dunne posted another Instagram story of her and her teammates at an LSU football home game against Army, with the caption, "Louisiana Saturday nights >".

LSU beat Army 62-0, and Daniels went 11-for-15 for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the first half during that game. 

Dunne is also currently dating Paul Skenes, who was a former LSU pitcher and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Just a few weeks ago, Dunne posted on Instagram alongside Skenes at what appears to be a wedding, with the caption, "my fav d8 ?". 

Although Daniels didn't shout out Dunne during his Heisman Trophy acceptance speech, he dd make sure to show some love to his LSU teammates, saying, "I want to thank all my teammates, from Arizona State to LSU. You're my brothers. You work so hard every day, inspiring me to be my best."

Daniels — who transferred to LSU from Arizona State after the 2021 season — became the first player since 2016 to win the Heisman as a member of a team that didn't play for a conference title.

Perhaps after Daniels' season comes to a conclusion on New Years Day — when LSU faces Wisconsin in the 2024 ReliaQuest Bowl — we'll soon see him at an upcoming LSU gymnastics event (whose season starts on January 5th), supporting Dunne the same way that she has been supporting him.
