Loverne did not begin playing football until high school after his mother reportedly insisted he take up sports in order to stay out of trouble. His football team, De La Salle High School, was named national champion in five different years on a winning streak which began when Loverne played there as a two-way lineman.
David Loverne was inactive for the entire season but did play on special teams for the next 2 years- even getting in some O-Line rotational duty in 2001 to complement the team- even playing a series at Fullback (blocking) vs the Colts.
The Redskins acquired him from the New York Jets on April 8, 2002 to swap 5th round picks (154th for 160th).
Loverne started at left guard in the season opener in 2002, and played in fifteen of the regular season games that year, starting in eleven of them. He was hampered with a quad injury during week 6. On March 1, 2003, he was traded to the St. Louis Rams for running back Trung Canidate and a 2003 fourth-round pick.
