NT lands 3 on C-USA 2015 Preseason 1st Team

Kudos to WR Carlos Harris, Kaydon Kirby, and Trevor Moore for landing spots on the First Team CUSA Preseason Award List.  It really is no surprise to us that these guys got the nod by the coaches for this list. They are all very deserving. Other things of interest are:

  • Offensive Player of the Year Brandon Doughty will make his Apogee debut on Thursday Oct. 15
  • Marshall is well represented with 6 players
  • Coaches are clearly thinking La. Tech is the best team in the West
  • FIU has got some good talent on this list and could be a sleeper team
  • Bold prediction Darvin Kidsy ends up being the Special Teams POY at the seasons end.
