He's playing this season for the Daytona Beach Thunder which is an expansion team in the American Indoor Football League.

Nice article. Always good to hear a "where are they now" story. Many thanks for digging this up, BestOfBreed.

Not to crossover a discussion from another thread, but this is exactly what I was talking about with regards to news out of the athletic department. This story is about a former Wofford player in a good sized newspaper and there is nothing on the Wofford website to alert anyone to it. Likewise, nothing on the Herald-Journal site (although in most cases they would have been alerted to it by a press release from Wofford). I don't want to beat a dead horse, but things like this are precisely what Wofford needs more of to maintain and cultivate fan interest.

Eyes of Old Main is 100% correct. This article should have been on the Wofford Athletic web site. My guess is this new associate Athletic Director isn't
concerned with us alumni (or much of anything else). I miss Mark Cohen! And I didn't realize he was as good as he was until he left.

Dead on the money, Rowdy. Mark Cohen was very effective at his job. Always there with the perfect observation and/or interesting fact. He was a powerful voice for the public perception of Terrier athletics and WOfford in general. We were lucky to have hung on to him for so long. TCU got a great one!
