FA and T.Y. won the Sun Belt Freshman of the Year in their respective sports this past season. YR (near, right) won it her freshman season 2 years ago. FA (left, thanks Alex J. Hernandez for photos) took it home despite not playing a full season because of back spasms. Shows how dominant the big guy can be even in limited playing time.
We all know already what T.Y. (above right) did last season earning the Freshman award, plus a nickname and a signature call "Goodbye" on touchdowns.
YR did even better garnering 3 All-Americans in her 3 years thus far at FIU.
Since Freddy played soccer his whole life in Colombia until 3 years ago when he picked up a basketball for the first time, maybe they should play the soccer "G-O-O-O-A-A-A-A-L-L-L!!" call when he scores at the Bank next season.
FA also was named to the All-Sun Belt team as well as FIU girls hoopster Monika Bosilj.
So which FIU freshman baseball player is going to take the Freshman of the Year Award come May later this year? Should happen right? FIU has got this award down pat.
Guess you good people liked the idea of a LIVE Q & A BLOG with MC. The blog numbers came in for Tuesday's GPP and it was the highest rated GPP blog outside of our LIVE GAME BLOGS that we started last season. We'll try and get MC, who said he had fun answering your questions, on here again around July before fall practice starts for another LIVE Q & A BLOG.
Off now to the first spring practice, will try and have the first daily report later tonight, if FIU football and baseball stories allow time to blog, if not look for 1st spring practice blog on here tommorrow.
