Bucannon, Furney named 2nd team All Pac-12

(Here's a version of the brief we put together for tomorrow's newspaper)


PULLMAN – Two Washington State football players were named second-team All Pac-12 yesterday.

Junior safety Deone Bucannon and junior kicker Andrew Furney were voted to the second team, though linebacker Travis Long, who is fifth in the conference with 9.5 sacks, was somewhat surprisingly named only as an honorable mention.

Long joined receiver Brett Bartolone, center Elliott Bosch, linebackers Cyrus Coen and Darryl Monroe, defensive tackle Xavier Cooper, cornerback Daniel Simmons and running back Teondray Caldwell on the honorable mention list.

USC receiver Marqise Lee was named Offensive Player of the Year, and Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton was named Defensive Player of the Year.

Stanford’s David Shaw, who led the Cardinal to a 10-2 record and the Pac-12 North division championship, was named Coach of the Year.

Bucannon is tied for third in the Pac-12 with 8.8 tackles per game and finished the season with four interceptions, two off the conference lead. Furney, who was also named the special teams Pac-12 Player of the Week on Monday, finished the season 14 of 20 on field-goal attempts. His 60-yard field goal was the longest in the Pac-12 this season.

Read on to see the full list of all-conference players.
