Posted at 9:19 AM, Jan 14, 2020

Following LSU's National Championship win, Steven Ensminger Jr. shared a social media post dedicating the win to his late wife Carley McCord.

McCord, a sports reporter and daughter-in-law of LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger, was one of five killed in a Lafayette plane crash in December.

The plane was heading to Atlanta for the Peach Bowl.

The photo shared to Ensminger's Facebook page shows a confetti covered field and the marquee signs declaring LSU as National Champions.

"This ones for you baby! I love you! Carley Ann," his post reads.

Many shared their condolences to Ensminger in the comments with some noting that McCord was watching over the Tigers Monday night.

One commenter said that McCord had, "the best seat in the house."

Ensminger and his father shared an emotional embrace following the LSU's 42-25 win against Clemson.

A seat in the press box was reserved in memory of McCord and before kickoff ESPN aired a special on McCord's life.
