The unveiling of the 2008 All-Sun Belt Team that is voted on by SBC coaches and the media (yours truly included) is still another week away, but several Golden Panthers got All-Sun Belt honors from Phil Steele Publications on Thursday.
As if there was any doubt, T.Y. Goodbye dominated the PS's All-Sun Belt team earning 3 positions on the first team: receiver, kick returner and punt returner.
Hilton is second in the nation with 2,074 all-purpose yards and has 10 touchdowns.
Also on the 1st team are offensive lineman Joe Alajajian, defensive back and FIU's leading tackler Robert Mitchell (left) and punter Carlos Munera (right).
Defensive back Anthony Gaitor, FIU's interceptions leader, made second team.
Center Brad Serini, defensive end and FIU sack leader Quentin Newman and linebacker Scott Bryant made the third team.
Don't forget to vote on GE's nickname in the last blog. Also, will have the Western Kentucky/FIU preview and predicted score on here on Friday afternoon.
Check out a story on FIU running back Darriet Perry (left) by yours truly in Friday's Miami Herald. Thanks to Sam Lewis for the DP photo on the left, where he's carrying 2 Hooters with him.
