Hickman, Miller Preseason Selections
FIU seniors Greg Hickman and Sam Miller have both been selected to the Lindy's Sports Annuals' 2013 Preseason All-Conference USA Team. Hickman, a defensive tackle, and Miller, a cornerback, were named to the Lindy's All-CUSA second team defense.
Hickman, who was also a preseason pick from Phil Steele, enters his senior campaign already listed prominently in the FIU record books and is the school-record holder with 10 career quarterback hurries. He is tied for fifth with four forced fumbles and his 23 tackles for loss for 84 yards are ninth in both categories. Hickman is also the anchor of the FIU defense with 23 career starts over the past three seasons.
Miller is FIU's veteran in the defensive backfield with 15 career starts. His three career fumble recoveries tie for fourth all-time at FIU, while his 10 career pass break-ups place him 10th. In 2012, Miller finished fourth on the team with 62 tackles.
FIU begins its affiliation with Conference USA in 2013, after eight seasons competing in the Sun Belt. The Panthers are slotted in the C-USA East Division along with East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss and UAB.
