Helton Leads Talented Tights to Tampa

| No TrackBacks

First-year tight ends coach Tyson Helton leads a talented group of players that will be looking to find the endzone at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Saturday night.

Senior Blake Annen leads the group, followed by freshman DJ Dowdy.
  In the future, Travis Johnson (who is from Tampa's Jesuit High School) and Tyler Cogswell will be looking for passes along with junior Josh Russ.

I tracked down Coach Helton in the football office at the Lindner Center and spoke to him about his players, the USF game and his brother, Clay.

For those that don't know, Clay Helton is Southern Cal's offensive coordinator and will call plays now with the dismissal of Lane Kiffin. Clay and Tyson's father, Kim Helton is a coaching veteran who actually coached in the Tampa Bay area years go with the Buccaneers.

UC fans may remember him more from his days as head coach of the University of Houston from the old Conference USA/Rick Minter days.

Here's Tyson who will likely make a fine head coach someday himself:
