Bucannon is on award watch list
PULLMAN, WA - Thursday we announced two Cougar Kickers who were placed on an awards watch list, today the same honor goes to one of their defensive stars.

Washington State University senior safety Deone Bucannon has been named to the Jim Thorpe Award 2013 Watch List. Bucannon is one of 48 players included on the watch list for the award that honors the nation's best defensive back. The Fairfield, California native was an All-Pac-12 second team selection last season after making a team-high 106 tackles, tied for second-most in the Pac-12 and was the highest total by any non-linebacker. Only the upcoming season can determine who actually wins the award, so best of luck to Deone!
