Could Shawn Loiseau be this years' Brandon Fusco?


ILB, 6ft1, 244lbs, runs a 4.75.

Had a strong East-West game showing good insticts despite attending Merrimack, a Divison 2 school because of a large red flag. But this is the reason for the red flag ...

"After taking a pipe to the head that required 28 stitches, Loiseau smashed another 17-year-old's head into the ground. The teenager was out cold and Loiseau wasn't sure if he'd wake up. Murder charges were a surreal, stinging possibility.....Eventually, his adversary in the coma woke up. Eventually, Loiseau's charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon (the ground) was dropped. But he was forgotten by Division I recruiters after the fight, another red flag to cross off the list....The melee lasted all of three minutes. Two guys Loiseau cited as "gang members" came to his home in Shrewsbury, Mass., alleging Loiseau had trailed them with his high beams on. One held a pipe and the other clutched a crowbar, he said. Shawn's father, Paul, came outside and the fight broke out. Shawn thought the two hit his dad - Paul Loiseau had just slipped into an embankment - so he snapped. His 69-year-old father is off limits. For days, the Loiseaus were flooded with threats. Some anonymous callers vowed to burn their house down. Paul Loiseau sat in his rocking chair on the front porch with a baseball bat waiting for someone to try him. Nobody showed up and tempers cooled. But Shawn's future was cloudy at best. Loiseau went on probation for two years, and Shrewsburry High School nearly wouldn't take him back as a senior. Loiseau returned and was named the state's defensive player of the year. His team went undefeated and won a state championship. The accolades were all footnotes, background noise, irrelevant. Division I schools had lost interest." http://www.jsonline.com/sports/division-2-linebacker-takes-longshot-route-to-nfl-5j4bert-140526833.html

I'm never a fan of taking guys with 'character issues' but this seems a one-off as a young 17year old defending his father and going berserk after being hit by a kid wielding an offensive weapon. Considering the position he plays him, might he be the next London Fletcher?
