Javier Lozano Chavira (born February 9, 1971 in Monterrey) was a Mexican footballer. He played for Tigres de la UANL and Monarcas Morelia as midfielder. He is nicknamed "El Pastor", which means "The Shepherd". He played in both teams with the number 22.
He debuted with Tigres in 1992. However his most notable season was 1995-96, when he scored 12 goals. That year, Tigres fought to avoid relegation to the Primera División A. Though Tigres qualified to the playoffs at the end of the regular season, the Primera Division's use of a percentage system for relegation, in which the team with the worst percentage in three years (instead of the worst team of a season) is relegated meant Tigres would still be dropping to the Primera División A. The crisis led to the privatization of the team.
After the privatization, Tigres reinforced the team to fight for promotion, which was achieved within the year. "El Pastor" Lozano participated fully with the team. He played in First Division with Tigres the following season as well.
However, overweight issues led to his separation of the team. He trained with Necaxa for a short period, but was never able to regain his condition.
In 1999 he returned to play with Morelia for 6 seasons, in which he scored a total of 13 goals. He was champion with Morelia in 2000 and runner-up in 2002.
