By Jocelyn VerVelde, TTU Sports Information Coordinator


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - This season on The Watson Brown Show, a new segment has been added. "Where have they landed?" focuses on 15 former student-athletes and where their lives have led them following their Tech careers.

Each Watson Brown Show features a two-minute segment where a former student-athlete recalls their time at Tech, tells stories from their lives, and tells where they are now in life.

This segment highlights Frank Omiyale, a Tech offensive linemen from 2001-04, who was drafted in 2005 by the Atlanta Falcons in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. During his senior year at Tech, Omiyale was named to the Football Gazette All-America team and earned first-team All-OVC honors. His NFL career included stints with Atlanta, Carolina, Chicago, and Seattle.

An extended version (below) of the interview from the Watson Brown Show will be available on YouTube after the shorter segment airs each week.
