BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – After appearing in the “others receiving votes” category multiple times over the past three seasons, Florida Tech finally got over the hump on Monday, cracking the American Football Coaches Association Coaches’ Poll at No. 22.

The Panthers nearly entered the rankings at the release of the preseason poll, receiving the most votes of any team outside the top 25.
