- Recorded 6 interceptions for 10 yards over college career.
- 12th round pick of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1985.
- A savvy selection by a much beleaguered franchise, Young stepped into the starting lineup at FS and had 3 interceptions, 80 total tackles, 6 pass deflections, and a fumble recovery.
- Had a solid ’90 campaign recording 111 total tackles.
- Traded to the New York Jets in 1991.
- Started 26 games over 3 seasons, recording 3 interceptions for 21 yards and 236 tackles.
- Played the 1994 season with the San Diego Chargers, appearing in their lone Super Bowl appearance.

Lonnie appears in Tecmo Super Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals, however oddly he has outlandish stats and abilities, making him one of the most complete defensive backs in the game.
