St. Thomas University Adds More Talent In Second National Signing Period

Year No. 2 Is Very Productive For St. Thomas University Football Program

What a difference a year can make.

For the St. Thomas University football program and head coach Bill Rychel, last Wednesday was certainly a much different feeling that last February – when the Bobcats eased into their first year of college football with so much to experience.

Even with one season under their collective belts, the Bobcats and this coaching staff went right at it once again this year – with an established product as the second football signing class - "Bobcat2".

With fans keeping track of the Bobcats Signing Class through social media and the STU Athletics' website, the second year was indeed much more relaxed as some of the top targets that this staff had followed throughout the past two years are now part of this impressive family.

Following the success of the first recruiting year, and heading into his second season leading the Bobcats, Coach, Rychel was excited to keep elevating this program.

"The first few recruiting classes to build the program are extremely important,” said Coach Rychel. “We added great depth, as well as character, all across the field to create competition and set standards to contend for national championships."

Coach Rychel added: "We are fortunate to have a great administration and campus community, that embraced and supported the program in our first season. I also want to thank our coaching staff for their hard work and efforts during the inaugural season and recruiting process, without them none of this is possible.”

This year, this coaching staff went all over Florida – and it showed last Wednesday as just about every corner of the state was covered.

Signees come from Jacksonville, Orlando, Merritt Island, Bradenton, St. Petersburg, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, Clearwater, Brooksville and Sarasota.

This program stayed home too – with Miami-Dade and Broward Counties heavily recruited.
