Northwest Florida State College Head Coach Steve DeMeo was not in St Louis, MO this past weekend at Jerry Mullen's JUCO Camp but I'm sure his phone is burning up from plenty of college coaches calling.
DeMeo a former assistant coach at Hofstra and Providence was recently hired by the Raiders and arrived in Niceville, FL today for his new job. DeMeo will be able to see his new team play this coming weekend at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, FL for the NJCAA Southeast Jamboree hosted by Rick Ball.
The Raiders brought Stephen Hurt and Vinnie Zollo to St Louis, MO this past weekend. Both former division one players will see plenty of interest in the recruiting circuit this summer and fall.
