Jean Francois bonds with Phil Collins

He can feel it cooomming in the air too-nighhht. Oh, loorrd.
Ricky Jean Francois is a slang-spitting young African-American athlete of Haitian descent who grew up in the Miami area, so you might not expect Phil Collins to be his inspirational music of choice. But that’s what the LSU training staff blared during his college days, so that’s what Jean Francois plays on his headphones when he wants to get pumped up for a workout.
Jean Francois heard a lot of Phil Collins this summer. A lot.
