FGCU heads into this series winners of 3 of their last 4 games and ready to get back on track after a tough loss to #5 Miami. FAMU has struggled this season with their only wins being a 3 game sweep over Grambling State University. The Rattlers have been swept by Stetson USF, and UF this season.
FAMU is led by Head Coach Jamey Shouppe, who has been with the team since 2013. He had led the team to two MEAC Championships in 2015 and 2019. Coach Shouppe spent his last 21 years before FAMU, as an assistant coach at FSU. He also played for FSU, was drafted in the 8th round of the MLB draft, and spent 4 years in the majors with the Houston Astros.
FGCU takes 3 out 4 games from the Rattlers this weekend on the road.
