Willie Rose Getting Some NFL Chatter From Local Media

Nice to see Willie gettin some media luv!

"When the NFL Draft rolls around next spring, don’t be surprised if William Rose is shaking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s hand pretty early in the festivities.

Rose, a senior fullback at Florida Atlantic University , is the son of former A-C Valley standout and Perry Township native Chris Rose. Chris was a letter-winner in three sports for the Falcons (football, basketball and track) before graduating in 1973. However, this is a story about the son."

The football program is located at the Ft. Lauderdale facility  :P, what has happened to the "profession" of reporting lately.  I know money is tight but it just seems like reporting across the board gets worse and worse.

GO OWLS!

“The one thing I would like that they have at the bigger schools is tradition,” said Rose. “We don’t have very much tradition. We don’t have that large of a student body and we only have about 4,000 students so we don’t get the greatest attendance to our games because we haven’t been around for very long. We have to give people time to buy into what we’re doing and going to these bowl games and winning is probably going to start that.”


Did they actually interview Rose? Why in the world would he say FAU has only 4000 students? Bigger schools?  I don't think they interviewed him.

come on guys. you know attendance is a huge issue. rose isnt stretching the facts at all. the students that go to our games are either from the davie or boca campus and sometimes were lucky to get half of them. we might have 27K + out of all campuses but not all of them want to even travel. our student sections is a lot bigger from 3 years ago, but its nothing close to the campuses we travel to.
