    LSU special teams ace Daniel Graff never imagined he would be running down kick returners and blocking punts for one of the top collegiate programs in the country. In fact, following his senior season at Archbishop Rummel High School in 2004 he had given up on football altogether.

    Despite earning all-district 10-5A honors as a starting cornerback on one of the state's top defenses, the Metairie, La. product didn't have a single scholarship offer to play intercollegiate football. Schools deemed him too small to compete at the next level.

    "I was just a little, skinny kid ... 150 pounds soaking wet," Graff joked.

    Unlike football, however, Graff opened the eyes of collegiate coaches on the running track. An all-state performer who ran a blistering 10.4 second 100-meter dash, Graff accepted a scholarship offer to run for Louisiana-Lafayette.

    But by a strange twist of fate, the Fighting Tiger senior would eventually make his way back to the gridiron.
