BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida Tech junior tight end Gabe Hughes has been named one of two recipients of the USA College Football Tight End of the Week Award following his performance this past Saturday.
Hughes caught the game-winning touchdown with two seconds remaining in the Panthers’ 33-32 victory over West Alabama last Saturday at Tiger Stadium in Livingston, Alabama.
The game marked the first-ever notch in the win column for Florida Tech in Gulf South Conference road games.
In total, the Lighthouse Point, Florida native registered four receptions for 56 yards, both second-most among all Panthers.
LIU Post’s Sean Bincks was also named Tight End of the Week by USA College Football for Week Six.
Additionally, redshirt sophomore defensive back Jake Holsinger was named defensive player of the week honorable mention and redshirt freshman quarterback Mark Cato received rookie of the week honorable mention laurels.
It is the fourth time this season that Cato has been named USA College Football Rookie of the Week Honorable Mention, in addition to receiving the rookie of the week award following Florida Tech’s Week One win over Stetson.
Florida Tech returns to action on Saturday, Oct. 18 versus North Alabama at Palm Bay High School’s Pirate Stadium in Melbourne. Kickoff for that game is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET. It will mark the Panthers’ Breast Cancer Awareness Game.
