Hoping for injury-free senior season

BATON ROUGE - For Craig Davis it seems like only yesterday that he stepped foot on the LSU campus as a true freshman.

One of the last remaining receivers from the 2003 National Championship team, the former O.P. Walker star said he cannot believe how fast the time has flown by.

"It seems like I only just got here," Davis said. "I mean I am only 20 years old. I am one of the youngest kids in the senior class and they are actually some sophomore and juniors that are older than me. The funny thing about that is they look up to me because I am a senior even though some of them are actually older than me in age.

"I have no regrets. This has been an unbelievable time at LSU for me. I am entering my senior season. That is still shocking to me, but I am going to continue to come out every day in practice and on the field and play as hard as I can. I really just want to cut down on injuries and have a full 2006 season."

An injury-plagued 2005 season saw the New Orleans native catch only 35 passes for 559 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
