FAU defensive lineman Hunter Snyder sacks Akron quarterback Kato Nelson during the Boca Raton Bowl. (Allen Eyestone/The Palm Beach Post) BOCA RATON — Saturday will be 283 days since veteran Florida Atlantic pass rusher Hunter Snyder last recorded a sack. Don’t expect that streak to continue for much longer. With Snyder making his way back from an undisclosed injury that’s lingered since training camp, he should be back in the sack column when FAU (2-2) begins Conference USA play with a road showdown at longtime rival Middle Tennessee (1-2). “I think this will be the game,” FAU head coach Lane Kiffin said. Snyder led the Owls with six sacks last year and entered this season fifth all-time on FAU’s sack list. The redshirt senior had 3.5 combined sacks in the C-USA Championship Game and Boca Raton Bowl and finished the season with eight tackles for loss.Snyder saw his most action this year in Friday’s 56-36 loss to UCF, recording two tackles. … [Read more...] about Owls notebook: FAU senior defensive end Hunter Snyder ready for breakout game; linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair honored by Senior CLASS Award
Florida Atlantic Owls running back Gerald Hearns (34) during a scrimmage at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida on August 11, 2018. (Allen Eyestone / The Palm Beach Post) BOCA RATON — If Lane Kiffin’s Florida Atlantic Owls are serious about repeating as Conference USA champions, they certainly have the depth to do so. FAU enters its season-opener against No. 7 Oklahoma on Saturday (noon, Fox)with six players who were named to the All-CUSA preseason team, including AP All-American running back Devin Singletary (American Heritage) and dangerous senior linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair. FAU also returns 10 starters on defense and finally gets to use both quarterback Chris Robison and wide receiver Jovon Durante, both of whom redshirted last season after transferring from Oklahoma and West Virginia, respectively. Beyond the big name stars is a roster featuring plenty of talented depth players capable of giving the Owls a boost this season.

By Andres Chio April 17, 2018 Houston’s sluggers have hit just 12 home runs this season compared to Sam Houston’s 33. The Bearkats have not been shutout a single time this year, while Houston has only once. Thomas Dwyer / The Cougar The Houston Cougars — 21-14 — will kick off the Sanders Cup against the Sam Houston Bearkats — 24 -11 — at Schroeder Park tonight in an I-45 clash. This past weekend, Houston lost a series to Tulane while Sam Houston defeated rivals Stephen F. Austin. But both teams have been shaky this month, as the Cougars’ game record is 4-3 while the Bearkats’ is 5-4.Houston is still struggling to find pitching consistency this month. They have had two shutout wins but also allowed three eight-run games.

Houston’s offense will … [Read more...] about Cougars need strong batting to overcome Bearkats
From 2005 to 2013, Kansas City regularly picked near the top of the MLB draft.A franchise-record string of nine consecutive losing seasons placed the Royals in the top 10 in the draft order eight times in nine years. Kansas City picked 12th on the one occasion it wasn’t in the top 10. Early on in that stretch, the Royals made an impact with those draft picks. Alex Gordon (2005), Mike Moustakas (2007) and Eric Hosmer (2008) became stars who fueled Kansas City to back-to-back World Series appearances and the franchise’s first championship in 30 years. And Luke Hochevar (2007) was a starter who became a reliever after Tommy John surgery and pitched in four World Series games in 2015.But after 2008, Kansas City didn’t fare as well in the first round. Aaron Crow (2009) pitched out of the bullpen for four seasons and represented the Royals at an All-Star Game (because somebody had to), and Christian Colon (2010) drove in the winning run in the 2015 World Series but was … [Read more...] about Hunter Dozier, the Royals’ No. 8 prospect, bounces back from injury-riddled year with Storm Chasers
