Yes, that is the young man. Thanks for the information. I hope he gets a shot somewhere else.
I believe you must be talking about Robert Lohnes. I had not heard why he left.
Sorry to hear that. He was exciting to watch and he seemed to have a lot of heart too. What was his name? I hope another school picks him up.
They wouldn't give him a scholarship so he quit
Owl Access, what ever happened to our punt returner that was from the Tampa area? He was about 5'6" and really fast. I can't remember his name.
Fau basketball Florida Atlantic Owls Basketball FAU Sun Belt
The Florida Atlantic University Owls basketball team took the court for its inaugural season in 1988. FAU basketball made the jump to Division I for the 1994-95 season. The following year they gained a conference affiliation, joining the Atlantic Sun, which at that time was known as the Trans American Athletic Conference.
FAU basketball competed in the A-Sun for 11 seasons. Florida Atlantic Owls basketball posted its best overall season in 2001-02. That year the Owls produced 19-2 record and earned their only NCAA tournament bid.
In 2006, Florida Atlantic Owls basketball made the jump to the Sun Belt Conference, where it still competes today. The 2009-10 season will mark the fourth season with FAU competing as a Sun Belt team – the second under the helm of head coach Mike Jarvis. FAU’s Sun Belt record was above the .500 mark in its first season in the conference, but the Owls haven’t finished that high in conference play since.
Playing in the newly refurbished FAU Arena, nicknamed "The Burrow," the OWls hope to rise the level of traditional FAU’s established Sun Belt foes Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State and Troy. A heralded 2009 recruiting class could be just the impetus needed to propel the Owls to the level of the Sun Belt elite.
