Jamey Shouppe Named MEAC Coach of the Year, Dylan Dillard Player of the Year
Shouppe’s Rattlers won 30 games this year for the first time since 2003. They head into this weekend’s MEAC Conference Tournament as the number one seed after winning more conference games (19) than at any time in program history.
Though their sights are set much higher, If FAMU can win two games this weekend, Shouppe will have won more games in a three-year period than any coach in program history. They are 79-70 since 2014.
Success in any college sport requires two interacting components. First is recruiting quality players (and individuals) to a program. Second is to exert leadership to get talented players to work together toward a common goal.
