Growing up on the mean streets of Abbeville, Louisiana, Roland LeBlanc was forced to outrun his siblings to supper in order to survive childhood. Competing for LSU, he developed an affinity for leaping over large pieces of wood into a puddle of water. Because, as it turns out, that’s an actual thing that people do.
