BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Former Florida Tech standout Terrance “T.J.” Lowder has signed a professional contract to play for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League (CFL).
Lowder, a native of Panama City, Florida, is the first FIT football player to sign with a Canadian club in program history.
“I am really proud of T.J,” said head coach Steve Englehart.
“He has continued to work for what he wants. He hasn’t listed to all of the people telling him that he can’t play at the next level. He’s getting a shot, now it’s up to him to make the most of it and I know he will.”
A 2015 USA College Football All-American, Lowder played one season for the Crimson & Gray after spending his first three years with Division I Florida International.
The wide reciever appeared in 11 games for the Panthers, recording 616 yards receiving and five touchdowns on 46 total receptions on the way to being selected to the All-Gulf South Conference Second Team.
In his breakout game for the Panthers, Lowder racked up 152 yards on a school record 14 receptions against DI Southeastern Louisiana.
