Question from Alan
What are your feelings/projections about us taking home the Sun Belt title this year?

If football snags it, and basketball snags it, it would be a fantastic moment for all FAU.

Owl Country united in our twin victories, as it were.

Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
I stay away from projections. If we work hard, smart and together...everything else will take care of itself. We will always have very high goals and an SBC Championship is one of many that we shoot for. Having both football and basketball championships would truly be a great thing for Florida Atlantic. I know that both programs will work to make that happen. Thanks for the email and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Thought of the Day -

We must either find a way or make one! Hannibal

Go Owls,

Rex Walters

Question from Justin
Let me start off by saying you've done a great job with so little.

Now that are facilities are a bit more adequate, will we have a better chance of keeping our prime players in state and away from our competition? i.e. DJ Magley from Brandenton, FL who's going to WKU? It stinks when they go into our backyard and take a big man like that.

Can't wait for the schedule to come out.

Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
Thank you for the email and question. I will say that the players that we identified in July of 2006 were the players that we wanted in last year's early signing period. I am very happy with what we have done in the state and we will continue to recruit not just players in the state of Florida, but the best players in Florida as well as outside of the state. We have built this program in the last two years and will continue to do so. There is no doubt in my mind that the renovations will help in recruiting. We will have a home to be proud of. However, this is just one of so many factors that are special about Florida Atlantic. I have a coaching staff that works tirelessly and with great passion. We have great leadership in President Brogan and Craig Angelos. We offer a first class education in an area that is surrounded by people that want to help our students. We live in one of the most beautiful places with unbelievable weather. I get to coach fine student-athletes that are going to make all of us very proud long after their time here at FAU. However, these are just a few of the things that we have to offer here. I am really blessed to be the head coach at Florida Atlantic University. I wish we could get out there and start practice today!!!! Sorry, got a little fired up. Justin, thanks for the question! We will work very hard to bring the best players that fit our program to FAU. And once they get here, we will work very hard to make you and all of our fans proud to be an Owl. Enjoy the rest of the summer and keep those questions coming.

Go Owls!
