Deone Bucannon has been a force for the Cougars at safety for four years. This season he lead the team in tackles with 109, forced fumbles with three, and his five interceptions are tied with Damante Horton for the team lead. More importantly, in his senior season Bucannon has led the Cougars to their first bowl game in 10 years.
With only one game left in his collegiate career, Bucannon has been piling up the awards and honors recently. Here's a list of the most prominent (bonus points for guessing which is my personal favorite):
- Pre-NFL draft Senior Bowl invite.
- Walter Camp Second Team All-American.
- Athlon Sports First Team All-American.
- First Team All-Pac-12.
- Thorpe Award Semifinalist
- CBS Sports Third Team All-American
