Thank You Howard!

As a 45 year old Boca native born and raised,  and an FAU graduate along with my wife and other family members I just wanted to thank Howard for bringing us this stadium.  I have watched since a child as this university has grown and this stadium is the cherry on top of unbelievable journey and without everything Howard poured into this we would not be celebrating this day on Saturday.

THANK YOU HOWARD, This will always be the House that Howard built regardless of who names it.

I think I am a little verklempt, talk amongst yourselves.


GO OWLS!

Re: Thank You Howard!

I agree completely with those sentiments. In less than a decade FAU has accomplished more than many programs have in their entire history. None of this could have been accomplished without Howard Schnellenberger.

1) Building the Oxley Center.

2) Making it to the semifinals of the 1-AA playoffs in record fashion.

3) Winning the SBC.

4) Going to the New Orleans Bowl.

5) Winning the New Orleans Bowl.

6) Going to the Motor City Bowl.

7) Winning the Motor City Bowl.

8) Building an on-campus stadium.

These are just a few of the remarkable accomplishments of FAU football in just a decade of life as a program. Cheers to Howard and to FAU.

GO OWLS!!!!!!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!

Definitely! Thank you Howard Schnellenberger for bringing us to reality…"To Believe is to be strong". And thank you Dusky, for taking the time to post this.

Re: Thank You Howard!

He has accomplished more than I could have imagined.  I remember sitting in ENC1101 next to Jared Allen during the infancy of the program…. before they had anything.  I have had a lot of fun watching this program grown into what it has become today.  In all honest I am a little sad the stadium is finally built.  Im going to miss dreaming about what the stadium will look like, how excited we all got when someone on the boards would leak some news, all the artist renderings….

Last year it felt like christmas morning, this year it feels like all the presents have been opened.

Thanks Howard!!!
