“There are two types of people in this world,” Loiseau said. “There are thermometer people, they’re always changing with the temperature. They show up and work one day but not the next. Then there are thermostat people, the people who set the tone, they set the hard work and they live there. That’s Coach Curran.”
Loiseau signed a two-year futures contract with the Colts earlier this offseason, meaning he’ll be back in camp this summer.
He says that Curran, a former Chelmsford High and UNH star, continues to be a mentor.
After signing with the Colts last season before Week 10, one of the first people he talked to was Curran.
“He was the first guy I met that when I told him my goal was to play in the NFL he didn’t laugh at me. He told me I could do it,” Loiseau said. “He held me accountable to it, too. Every day he reminded me of that goal and made sure I was working towards it.
“That’s why I knew he was the perfect fit for Merrimack. I’ve had a lot of coaches at all levels, and I’ve never met someone who helps his kids on and off the field the way Coach Curran does. He has helped out guys with financial issues, family issues. What he has done for me is just incredible.”
