Highlights:
ARGOS_LIONS 2017: Picking up where he left off in 2016, Loucheiz enjoyed a productive sophomore year with the Lions. Moving from the nickle linebacker spot into the secondary, Purifoy recorded 49 defensive stops which tied him for fifth among his defensive teammates and added three more tackles on special teams along with three interceptions and 10 pass knockdowns.

 

2016: A notable CFL debut for the talented defensive back who stepped into the difficult ‘nickel’ position for the Lions and started all 18 regular season games as well as both playoff contests for the club. Fourth among Lions with 43 defensive tackles to go along with five stops on special teams, Loucheiz notched his first interception in Hamilton on July 1 and scored his first TD on a 47-yard fumble return in Montreal on August 4. He also added five sacks, three forced fumbles and four knockdowns on the year.

 

2014: Loucheiz was signed by the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent in May 2014 and made the club’s 53-man roster coming out of training camp. He appeared in 11 games for the Colts notching six tackles, a forced fumble and a pass knockdown. He was waived by Indianapolis that November and claimed by the Seattle Seahawks before being released in December.

2011-2013: Loucheiz appeared in 37 games over three seasons at Florida before declaring for the NFL Draft in 2014. The speedy defender tallied 69 tackles, two interceptions including one for a touchdown to go along with 12 knockdowns and four tackles for a loss.

 

Personal:
Loucheiz graduated from the University of Florida in 2014, and says that if football wasn’t in the cards as a career he would become a psychologist. He didn’t hesitate when asked about his hero, and goes on to talk about his Grandad who is like a father to him. When Loucheiz isn’t on the field, you can find him watching horror movies, or listening to hip-hop music. Loucheiz says his mom is definitely his biggest fan, both on and off the field.
