All-SEC safety Landry will return to LSU

1/17/2006 - LSU Tigers

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LaRon Landry, a three-time
all-Southeastern Conference safety, said Monday that he has decided
to return to LSU for his senior season.

Landry led LSU in tackles as both a freshman and sophomore and
earned first team all-conference honors in 2005 after recording 69
tackles and a team-high three interceptions for the fifth-ranked Tigers.

Landry also earned third-team All-America honors this past
season from The Associated Press.

"I'm thrilled with LaRon's decision to return to LSU," head
coach Les Miles said Monday. "LaRon is a player that brings a
great deal to our football team in terms of his ability on the
field, but he's also a guy who is a leader and someone that other
players on this team look up to. This is certainly exciting and it
gives us a nice boost as we start our preparation for spring
football."

For his career, Landry has recorded 241 tackles, 12.5 tackles for losses, seven sacks and nine interceptions.
