St. Aug Head Coach Michael Costa said the preseason voting shows how much the program has evolved. Costa has coached the team since football was re-instituted at the university in 2002.

"It is a great accomplishment," said Costa, entering his 12th season as St. Aug Head Coach. "It shows we are respected as a program. We have accomplished a lot in 12 years."
