Buccheri (RG #59), Offensive Lineman of the Year

In a season with only two wins, sometimes it's hard to find the bright spots. Our offensive line, led by a couple of sophomore guards, Buccheri at right guard and X. Leplae at left guard, played well enough to garner the notice from the NCAA. In the end, with 52 pancakes and allowing only 2 sacks, the award for Offensive Lineman of the Year went to Buccheri (RG #59).

She was just as surprised as me when we got the news. Pre-season favorite for the award, and eventual runner-up, was the hulking senior right tackle from Air Force.

As the football season winds toward the National Championship (#3 Auburn vs #1 Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl), the accolades would't stop with that award. Buccheri was also selected as a first-team All-American, alongside with left guard and fellow sophomore, X. Leplae.
