Bulls’ se­niors poised to set records

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - SPORTS - Joey Knight, Tampa Bay Times

TAMPA — Roughly 20 min­utes prior to Thurs­day evening’s Tulsa-USF game, al­most cer­tainly the Bulls’ 2017 home fi­nale, 23 se­nior play­ers will be rec­og­nized. By night’s end, a few of them could be im­mor­tal­ized. A hand­ful of se­niors are on the cusp of break­ing USF of­fen­sive and de­fen­sive ca­reer records. Among them is fifth-year se­nior MLB who en­ters the con­test only four tack­les shy of break­ing

15-year-old school ca­reer mark (367). Sanchez ap­peared poised to break it two Satur­days ago at UConn, but fin­ished with only three tack­les.

“It’ll be nice if I can do it at home,” Sanchez said. “I would’ve loved to have done it [at UConn] to add on to it this week. But to do it at home in front of our fans, and es­pe­cially on se­nior night if I were able to break it, it would be some­thing re­ally spe­cial for my fam­ily and ev­ery­one close to me see, and the fans that have been here to see me.”

Later in the evening, QB very well could break ca­reer to­tal yardage record (10,875). Flow­ers, who ex­pects to have his 1-year-old daugh­ter in at­ten­dance, needs 357 yards — a typ­i­cal night at the of­fice for him — to break the mark.

With one rush­ing touch­down, he also be­comes only the sixth player in Football Bowl Sub­di­v­sion his­tory to col­lect 60 pass­ing and 40 rush­ing TDs in a ca­reer.

Ad­di­tion­ally, se­nior PK needs only one field goal to tie the USF sea­son record (19) shared by


Maikon Bo­nani Aug­gie Sanchez, Kawika Mitchell’s Quin­ton Flow­ers Matt Grothe’s Emilio Nadel­man Del­bert Al­varado.
