MORE FIU VOLLEYBALL HONORS
The FIU ladies received more recognition for their best season (32-4, round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament) in the program's 23-year history.
We should know within the next couple of weeks if YR receives her 4th All-American nod.
TIP OF THE CAP
Yes, last week was the final football game for 19 FIU seniors. This senior class endured some tough seasons as the program won 9 games in their four years.
Would like to take this time to acknowledge a couple of seniors -- who were called on to speak after every game and at just about every practice -- for their cooperation the past 4 seasons. As the face of the defense for 3 of his 4 seasons, El Oso Scott Bryant (left, thanks Alex J. Hernandez photo) never turned down an interview and always spoke even when a lot of times things were not going well with the program. Same goes with Paul McCall, (right, thanks AJH photo) who as the offensive leader the last 2 seasons, plus 1 game, always talked after a game regardless of how tough the game was and as you saw this season PMC took a beating.
Having the privilege to work in this field, covering and writing about professional/college teams and athletes, I can tell you it is not the norm for athletes (more so pro athletes) to face the music when times are tough or when there is a lot of losing. However, SB and PMC were always stand-up guys and always spoke whether it was a win or loss.
PP: No restrictions or parameters. Just keep it clean language-wise and have fun.
