Tyler All-American; New Watch Party Home for FIU Football

Tyler Townsend was named today an NCAA All-American after his record-breaking season.Tyler

TT hit .426 with 24 HR and an FIU single-season record 77 RBI. TT also broke the FIU career RBI record with 164 ribs in his three seasons at FIU. He also had 182 total bases -- another FIU record.

Likely gone to the big leagues after the coming MLB draft on June 9-11, TT earned his second All-American honor at FIU after being named AA his freshman season.

FIU football has a new official home for watch parties when the Panthers are on the road for 7 games next season.

Dazzle The Sports Grill (a brand new location) on the corner of 117th Avenue and Bird Road (SW 40 St.) in Miami will provide special discounts on food and drinks during Panthers games. All FIU Watch Parties will also include FIU’s own Golden Dazzlers, FIU’s mascot Roary, and other Panthers prizes is what the e-mail I received today says.

The first watch party is Sept. 12 when FIU opens the season at Alabama.

SouthPaw: Pete, any news on any remaining scholarships to be awarded for this upcoming season? Also, do you have any update on Quavon Taylor? Pete, can you also give us hungry FIU football fans more updates on the status of Cedric Mack, Carlos Munera, and Chris Cook? Also, what's the status of the D-line coaching position? Has this been officially filled?

PP: FIU may still have 1 or 2 scholies left to hand out. Quavon Taylor is not coming to FIU or likely any school after what I heard, he is dealing with some legal trouble. Mack is still trying to get on the team (Esteban Ari Gold update), Munera is still waiting to hear from the NCAA if they will grant him a medical redshirt. Cook is likely done playing football. Cary Godette is the FIU D-line coach.
