Furney, Bucannon named to Pac-12 2nd Team
Ten Washington State football student-athletes received All-Pac-12 Conference recognition, the conference office announced Monday.
Juniors Deone Bucannon and Andrew Furney each garnered second team honors while senior linebacker Travis Long, freshman Brett Bartolone, redshirt-junior center Elliott Bosch, freshman running back Teondray Caldwell (as a returner), sophomore linebacker Cyrus Coen, redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Xavier Cooper, redshirt-freshman linebacker Darryl Monroe and redshirt-senior cornerback Daniel Simmons all received honorable mention.
Bucannon picks up his first career all-conference accolade after making a team-high 106 tackles, tied for second-most in the Pac-12 and was the highest total by any non-linebacker. Bucannon also made a team-best four interceptions including a two-interception performance against Oregon. The Fairfield, Calif. native posted seven double-digit tackle performances this season including a 17-tackle game at Arizona State.
Furney earns his first All-Pac-12 honor after going 14-for-20 on field goal attempts, tied for second in the conference. The Burlington, Wash. native was a perfect 7-for-7 on attempts inside 30 yards and 6-of-10 on kicks outside of 40 yards including a conference-best 60-yarder against Eastern Washington. Furney went 25-of-26 on PATs and capped his season going 3-for-3 in the Apple Cup victory, tying the game with a 45-yard kick with 1:59 remaining before kicking the game-winner from 27-yards in overtime.
Long caps his outstanding WSU career with his fourth all-conference accolade while the seven others each pick up their first career All-Pac-12 honor.
