BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University senior tight end Nexon Dorvilus has earned a spot on Athlon Sports magazine's preseason Conference USA second team.
Dorvilus was named to the 2013 CollegeFootballPerformance.com watch list last week. He saw action in every game as a junior and finished his campaign with 30 receptions for 301 yards in 2012. Dorvilus was one of seven receivers to record a touchdown reception and led all with five scores. He had a season high six receptions and 78 yards versus Troy University. At season's end he earned second team All-Sun Belt honors, the former conference FAU competed in, and also was named the team's Student-Athlete of the Year. The senior will be asked to provide leadership as the Owls make the transition into Conference USA in 2013 and play their second season under the direction of FAU Head Football Coach Carl Pelini.
FAU will open the 2013 season on Friday, Aug. 30 versus the University of Miami at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens. The Owls will open the home schedule with fellow Conference USA member Middle Tennessee State University on Saturday, Sept. 21 at FAU Stadium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.
