FOOTBALL, CROSS COUNTRY ATHLETES EXCEL
MELBOURNE, FLORIDA — Florida Tech junior Justin McMaster and freshman Sean Ashley were chosen Panther Student-Athletes of the Week for the period of Oct. 20-27.
McMaster turned in an impressive performance this past weekend at the Sunshine State Conference Championship. McMaster finished sixth with a time of 26:15 for the 8k race. McMaster led the Panthers, and helped the team to a fifth place finish.
Ashley returned to the football field this past weekend for the Panthers after missing the previous four games due to injury.
Ashley made a big impact for his return as he rushed for three touchdowns in the Panthers’ 37-3 victory over Warner in FIT’s inaugural homecoming football game. He finished the game with five carries for 15 yards, and also was 2-for-3 passing the ball for 22 yards.
