FIU coach Ron Turner said running back Anthon Samuel, a Miami Monsignor Pace High graduate who transferred from Bowling Green, won’t be eligible this season, but he is enrolled and will join the team in the spring. Samuel ran for 998 yards last season.

Ironically, another Pace High graduate, Travis Greene, will be the starter at running back for Bowling Green.

Nobody is more upbeat on a day-to-day basis than redshirt junior quarterback Jake Medlock. Asked if he ever has had a bad day or down day, Medlock laughed and said, “I try not to.

“I stay positive in myself and know that each day I can get better and better.”

Medlock said he always has been that way and so have his brothers, FIU long-snapper Sam and FIU oral commit Luke.
