February 27, 2015 - kicker Drake Hillman switches from soccer
"Drake Hillman, who scored 21 goals in his career at Florida Tech, missed just three of the 12 field goals he took Thursday with the football team. It has been a crazy couple of weeks for the Plymouth, England, native who had no intentions of playing football just a couple of months ago. 'This came out of nowhere,' Hillman said. 'Around the end of February, I got a text saying the football team was looking to see if anyone wanted to try out to kick.' His teammates mentioned it to him because he is out of eligibility in soccer, but has an extra year of eligibility if he changes sports. So Hillman decided to give it a shot." - Florida Today
