FIU fans’ corner: Andres Velasco y Coll, Daniel Denis and Alberto Concepcion

Andres Velasco y Coll

FIU senior

“I’ve always been a fan of Richard Leonard because he’s not very tall and that speaks to me personally. And, he puts in a lot of effort. Especially this year, we need him to be good because we need to solidify the secondary.”

Daniel Denis

FIU 2012

“Richard Leonard, senior cornerback. Just because he’s already the best player on the team. He’s got the most talent, more than likely. Speedster, dynamic player. One of the things that stands out to me is the kick return at FAU a couple of years ago (100 yards). He can just change the game for you, which is something that we’re lacking.”

Alberto Concepcion

FIU 1996

“(Wide receiver/running back/kick returner) Deandre Jasper. I think he’s underutilized. He’s a junior from Miami Jackson. The few times I’ve seen him touch the ball, he’s electric. He reminds me a little bit of TY (Hilton). They’re just not utilizing him.”
