Hitting the town

When last spring turned to summer, the LSU coaching staff hit the recruiting trail in search of locking up the future links to the offensive line chain. After landing a guard and tackle in Chris Faulk and Carneal Ainsworth, the staff found another piece that fit in Brownwood-native Stavion Lowe.

Four months later Lowe has wrapped us his senior campaign, turning his focus to the coming offseason.


"We ended up at 3-7, so the season was kind of a letdown," Lowe said. "We just had a super young team. We even had to pull freshmen, which we never do. Then a lot of the guys were sophomore. In fact we averaged over 40 points a game, which was one of the highest marks in 3A, but our defense would give up even more.”


Lowe’s senior season was plagued by a nagging knee injury that was minor in scope, but never seemed to heal properly because he returned to action too soon.  The 6-4, 295-pounder is now focused on getting healthy and turning out a solid performance in his upcoming All-American game.


"It is still giving me a lot of trouble, so I am trying to take care of everything," Lowe said. "I really want to have a good performance for the Under Armour All-American game. Me and Xavier [Su'a-Filo] are on the same team, so that will be fun.

“I don't even know how he found that out, but he told me we would be during the Alabama game,” added Lowe. “Russell [Shepard] is also playing in it, so that will be fun too. I just hope I can be back healthy, because I want to show everyone on national television how good I can be."


With coaches hitting the road on recruiting, Lowe said that he is waiting for a visit from offensive line coach Greg Studrawa.


"I talked to coach Stud on Monday night," Lowe said. "We caught up on everything and he is going to come see me tonight. We are just going to chill, and then I am coming down to Baton Rouge on Friday for my official visit. I talked to Russell and he will be in town as well, so we are going to do some recruiting for sure."


Even more important than helping the Tigers reel in fellow prospects, Lowe is using the opportunity to show his family everything he has learned about the Tiger program.


"I am coming with my family, so I am pretty excited for them," Lowe said. "My grandpa came to the [Mississippi] State game with me, and my mom was at the Alabama game. My grandma is the one who has not seen any of it, so I am ready to get her down this weekend so that she can see everything that we saw in the program."
