TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 26, 2011) – FAMU’s fourth leading rusher of all-time, Philip Sylvester, has been invited to the Atlanta Falcons camp as a free agent after enduring the delay of the lockout. Sylvester, finished his career with 2,998 yards rushing, carrying the Rattlers on his back, with six consecutive 100-yard games to spark a six-game winning streak to end the 2010 season.
Sylvester said, “I feel great to have another opportunity to get on the field and represent FAMU, my city and my county. My agent called me around 9:30 p.m. last night and then a representative from the Falcons called this morning. I’m packing and getting things in order to leave.”
