Land O’ Lakes punter Dino Tsilionis, a first-team All-County selection at the position, has accepted a preferred walk-on opportunity at Division I FCS Jacksonville University, according to Gators coach Brian Wachtel.

Tsilionis averaged 32.4 yards per punt last season and 35.2 yards over his past two seasons, with 25 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. He is known more for his accuracy and control than power.

Tsilionis was drawn to the school by its proximity to home.

“He wanted to stay in the state of Florida and play football,” Wachtel said in a text message. “Jacksonville was the right fit academically and football-wise.”
