Jon Alston update

You may remember reading former Loyola star Jon Alston's training camp blog here at shreveporttimes.com.

Well, Alston completed his rookie season with the St. Louis Rams and if The Sporting News is any indication, Alston's future appears to be bright.

You'll find Alston's photograph on page 40 of this week's issue. Alston is fighting off a block from an Oakland player.

The reason for Alston's appearance is the magazine's prediction for a bigger role for Alston in 2007. Says TSN:

"The Rams' Jon Alston could have a significant role in his second season, but it's uncertain at what position. Alston (6-0, 218) prefers to play linebacker but would need to gain weight to do so. Coach Scott Linehan is intrigued by the idea of using Alston as a safety who would play near the line of scrimmage in run support. Alston also has the speed to be an effective blitzer.''
