Schnellenberger Show Air Date Announced

Oct. 16, 2000


The "Big Bad Burley Bird" was introduced by Howard Schnellenberger, Florida Atlantic University's Director of Football Operations and Head Coach, three years ago. That bird now has a face, a personality and a soul. You can meet the individuals who have brought life to the inaugural squad, through "The Howard Schnellenberger Show" which will air 2:30 - 3:00 pm, October 28 on CBS News 12.

Five Star Production, a Football Founder, and Coach Schnellenberger have teamed together to introduce selected players. The first show features Dave Richards, a defensive tackle from Delray Beach (Spanish River HS), James Ray, an offensive lineman from Boca Raton (Boca Raton HS), Thomas Parker, a wide receiver from Miami (Northwestern HS), Kevin Ketchum, an offensive lineman from Miami (Plametto), Mauratae Johnson, a defensive back from West Palm Beach (Suncoast HS), Eddie Dunbar, a tight end from Pompano (Northeast HS), Mario Fernandez, a quarterback from Miami (Hialeah HS) and Anthony Jackson, a running back from Delray Beach (Olympic Heights HS).

While Schnellenberger introduces the players, high school coaches, fathers, mothers and those who have had a major influence will give fans an insight on the individuals who bring a pulse to the FAU "Big Bad Burley Owls".

The second of three shows will follow a similar format and will air November 11, again on CBS New 12, which is also a football Founder.
