It’s only been two years since Devin White took one of his horses on a stroll around a football stadium, but this time there was a key addition: the Lombardi Trophy.

The former LSU star promised last week that he’d be riding around Raymond James Stadium, trophy-in-hand, if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl 55.

“I don’t care what they say. I’m putting the horse out and I’m going to hold the Lombardi Trophy and ride around the whole stadium,” White said. “They can do whatever they want to do, but guess what? I’m gonna be on top of the world.”

He made good on that promise Wednesday, giving the trophy a kiss before saying “victory lap” and kicking off with his horse, Artistic Dream, for a lap around the field where the Bucs defeated the Chiefs on Sunday.

The customary week off between conference championship weekend and the Super Bowl? Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White isn’t a fan.

If this all seems a bit like deja vu, that’s because White celebrated the end of his LSU career in the same fashion. After his LSU career ended in 2018 White hopped on his horse, Daisy Mae, for a ride around LSU’s campus and Tiger Stadium.

White posted the video with the caption, “best moment of my life.” He was picked No. 5 overall by the Bucs in the NFL draft five months later.

He racked up 38 tackles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions after missing Tampa Bay’s wild card round victory over the Washington Football Team.
