"Lott won All-Conference honors as a safety at Drake in 1974 after winning similar honors as a linebacker the preceding year. His hard-hitting, versatile talents reminded scouts of Oakland Raiders safety Jack Tatum. Lott was involved in 83 tackles in 1974 and had three pass interceptions in 1973 and 1974. He was Drake co-captain last year.
Lott is a public relations major who hopes someday to enter the corporate public relations field. He enjoys music, dancing and reading."
