Or maybe not. Those are all part of an undetermined future. In the present tense, no school has benefited from a recent coaching hire like FAU. The Owls just won 11 games for the first time, and they did so with:
A junior starting quarterback (Jason Driskel)
A sophomore star running back (Devin Singletary)
A freshman No. 1 receiver (Willie Wright)
A sophomore tight end (Harrison Bryant)
Sophomore and junior starting offensive tackles (Reggie Bain and Brandon Walton)
One senior among the top 14 tacklers on defense
FAU could be even better next year.
And the Owls were already one of the best teams in the country over the last month or two. I’m not sure where this ride on the #LaneTrain ends up, but right now, FAU is enjoying it immensely.
