04/29/2013 - Eagles Add Nine Rookie Free Agents...A multi-faceted player who has experience at quarterback, running back and wide receiver at LSU, Russel Sheppard played in 49 games (14 starts) for the Tigers and capped off his career with 733 rushing yards, 565 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns (five rushing, five receiving). A native of Houston, TX, earned Parade All-America and USA Today second-team All-USA honors at Cypress Ridge HS after totaling more than 1,000 yards of offense and 14 touchdowns in three playoff games. - PhiladelphiaEagles.com

03/29/2013 - 2013 LSU Pro Day: Wide receiver Russell Shepard was a late addition to the Senior Bowl but he didn't receive an invitation to the combine. On Wednesday, he turned in average workout results, including a 4.51 40-yard dash, 4.32 short shuttle, 7.04 three-cone drill, 38.5-inch vertical jump and 10-4 broad jump. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

03/29/2013 - 2013 LSU Pro Day: Russell Sheppard, WR (6-0 7/8, 196) - Shepard ran the 40-yard dash twice in 4.46 seconds. He had a 38 1/2-inch vertical, a 10-foot-2 broad jump, a 4.37-second short shuttle, a 7.09-second three-cone drill and did eight reps of 225 pounds on the bench. He did both wide receiver and defensive back workouts. Scouts think his best position in the NFL could be at defensive back. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

09/01/2012 - No. 3 LSU's season-opening 41-14 victory overt North Texas on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium wasn't nearly as decisive as the oddsmakers had expected or the Tigers would have preferred. The 43-point underdog Mean Green withstood a 24-0 start by LSU and shocked the Tigers with an 80-yard touchdown pass and a point-saving interception near their own goal line to get within 24-7 at halftime. That forced LSU to stick with its starters well into the second half. LSU had by far its longest possession in the game in the third quarter, moving 74 yards in 16 plays, but settled for a 30-yard field goal by Drew Alleman and a relatively modest 27-7 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Tigers have touted new starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger as a strong-armed junior who will bring far greater balance to the offense, but that didn't happen Saturday. Mettenberger completed 19-of-26 passes for 192 yards and threw an interception from the North Texas seven. Mettenberger's 30-yard touchdown pass to Russell Shepard at the end of the third quarter was negated by a penalty, as was an earlier punt return for a touchdown. LSU was penalized 10 times for 55 yards. Mettenberger got his only touchdown of the game, moments after the pass to Shepard was negated, when he threw a 34-yard scoring pass to Kadron Boone to make it 34-7 on the first play of the fourth quarter. - The Sports Xchange
