Citadel coach Mike Houston shrugs off SoCon preseason poll

"To me, preseason polls are meaningless," said Houston, who takes over a Citadel team that finished 5-7 overall and 4-4 in the league last season under former coach Kevin Higgins. "The only one that matters is the standings at the end of the year. But it's obviously a motivating item for our team, and I might mention it to them once or twice during preseason camp."

New Commandant featured in his hometown newspaper

When Dr. Eugene Paluso first heard his son was chosen to be part of the elite Navy SEAL unit, the Washington Hospital otolaryngologist of 40 years was rendered speechless. "I didn't even know what a SEAL was," Paluso admitted, but a quick search of the job description revealed what he already knew about his son. Navy SEALS are a special operations force that conduct dangerous, small-unit missions, sometimes targeting terrorists. "I did the research, and if you are determined – and he's a pretty determined guy – you'll do it and he did it."

At home with the Houstons

He's a former football player and current head coach at The Citadel. There are plenty of accolades that come with Mike Houston, including a career record of 19-2 in the conference and a runner up finish in Division II last season.  The Citadel is hoping their new head football coach is a home run hire. No matter the field for Houston, it's the same goal: molding boys into men. That's no more evident than in the back yard of his Charleston home with his family.

Here's a excerpt from the interview." ...The streets from bustling with activity when i was a child was almost dead. Many of the commercial buildings were deteriorating before your eyes. Reporter: the product of an old charleston family, a graduate of the citadel, the city's military academy. He had a brief career in law before becoming a somewhat unlikely candidate for the times. You're a white guy from an old family in the city. You were a native. There were others, afric african-americans, women, why were you the right man? Well, that was for the voters to determine. I had been to the legislature in a very young age, and i gravitated towards working on progressive issues, and working on the challenges so the african-american leadership in the white business leadership saw in me somebody who could unify the city."
