Florida International University Golden Panthers Football History
Since 2002, Florida International University
has been making waves as one of the up-and-coming teams in the NCAA football ranks, building out a fan base that has been
pouring into the stands for more than a decade at this point. Players like T.Y. Hilton, Anthony Gaitor, Tourek Williams and
more have headed on to the NFL after their days at FIU, and you never know when the next great player is going to burst onto
the scene and become the next iconic Panthers' player. With a team on the rise in C-USA and a program is continually building,
the Panthers have a squad that has become a staple of the sports scene around Florida International University for a reason.
This program may be a young one, but it's one that has shown that it is ready to rise in the ranks on a national scale and
take its place among the elite teams in the country on an annual basis.
The Florida International
University Golden Panthers football program is one of the most feared in C-USA, and you'll understand why considering they've
already sent some of their best players on to the NFL despite only being around for barely a decade. Come out and see the
Golden Panthers in action this season and you'll understand what all the buzz is about, as this is a team that's never exactly
lacking in talent from one year to the next. As one of the newer teams playing at the highest level of college football, the
FIU Panthers may not have one of those programs that has been passed down through the generations, but that only means that
their best years are still ahead of them as they look to make a name for themselves in Conference USA.
International University Golden Panthers Football Trivia
Did you know that T.Y. Hilton returned a punt for a touchdown
on his very first collegiate touch?
That's right, and Hilton went on to have a very impressive career for the Golden
Panthers during his time at FIU. Hilton played so well that the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League selected
him in the NFL Draft. Hilton may have entered the pro game as a relatively unknown player, but plenty of football fans know
his name now. Hilton is now the top receiver on the Colts and a rising star in the NFL. The Colts are surely looking for Hilton
and quarterback Andrew Luck to form a dynamic duo in Indianapolis for years to come.
