Landry glad to be back in the swing of things

Senior free safety LaRon Landry is beginning his fourth season at LSU. But even after threes in Baton Rouge, there is one thing that never really changes. The heat. "When you start thinking about the heat, that is when you make mistakes," Landry said.

"You have to come out there and stay focused. The heat is going to be there regardless. You have to make sure and focus on the little things, technique and things like that."


The Tigers opened fall camp Monday morning with a 9 a.m. workout at the Charles McClendon Practice Facility. The freshman will go at 3:30 this afternoon in a sperate workout. Landry said the split squad practice can make it tough.


"We are getting a lot of reps in," Landry said. "The younger guys will be out this afternoon and with split practices, it can be pretty tough."


Monday's practice wasn't all that complicated. The Tigers worked out for two and a half hours going through some basic team drills and individual position reps. Landry the one thing he has to get used to again, even being a senior, is the contact.


"You just have to get comfortable hitting again," Landry said. "I didn't really whale on anyone today. Kind of bumped into some people, nothing real intense."


As previously stated, Landry is heading into his senior season as a four-year starter having started his true freshman season at free safety for the national championship team. He is listed on literally every all-American team, all-conference list and is on watch lists for every national award. Landry says he tries not to pay attention to that.


"I don't really get caught up in all of that stuff," Landry said. "I just go out there and do what I have been doing and try and lead by example."
