After taking a small hiatus, we refueled, got Korn a Gatorade and a Slim Jim (or two) and shipped him off to Greenville for our next stop on our Palmetto Pigskin Tour, The Furman Paladins. The Paladins are in a bit of transition. After being a quality program for 9 seasons in FCS competition under former Head Coach Bobby Lamb, longtime Paladin Assistant, Bruce Fowler, steps in as the head man. Coach Fowler was nice enough to sit down with us to discuss where he feels his program stands at the present time, and what he’s looking for in 2011.
Coach Fowler also allowed us to get ahold of two of his players, Senior Center Daniel Spisak, and Senior Corner Ryan Steed to discuss their enthusiasm of the upcoming season.
Furman gets their season underway Sept. 3 at Coastal Carolina.
