LSU's Loston heading to draft thinking about more than himself

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La - LSU safety Craig Loston has proven to have a knack for making big plays.  All three of his interceptions during his senior season secured key wins, but he has also proven to be solid against the run.  Loston says he loves to come up and get physical on backs, but “when I get a chance to cover, I like to show people I can do that too. “

Loston may not be a speed burner, but that hardly means he’ll have trouble moving up to the next level in the NFL.  He says, “Coming out of the SEC I know it can get fast, but I don’t think it can get too much faster.”  Loston believes he’s ready for that jump to the NFL.

But when looking at all the defensive backs who have preceded him from LSU they have helped give the school a reputation for being known as “DBU.”   Loston says “It’s an honor.  So many have gone on to have careers in the NFL.  I just hope to live up to DBU.”

Loston has a lot to live up to as he has a two year old daughter named Cy’lan who has changed his world.  “You know, it’s not about me any more.  That’s why I went back to school, to get that paper.  No one can take that away…football is not guaranteed.”

Loston majored in theater design and plans for a second career.. “after” he takes his shot at football’s biggest “stage.”
