BATON ROUGE -- With All-American Eric Reid locking down the free safety spot, Craig Loston understands why there will be a position change.

The junior, now three years removed from committing to LSU as the nation's top safety, is finally looking at a starting position with the Tigers, although that requires he move across the defensive formation to strong safety.

Disappointing as that might be for most players, halfway through the spring session, Loston is just happy for an opportunity to see the field more often. Although he is the Tigers' most experienced returning safety (apart from Reid), Loston said he isn't taking that chance for granted.
