Patterson, Robinson Both Named To Buck Buchanan Award Watch List

Maine senior cornerback Manny Patterson and James Madison senior cornerback Rashad Robinson have been selected to the 2019 STATS FCS Buck Buchanan Award Watch List. 

They are among 25 total players from 13 different conferences on the Watch List. The Buchanan Award, which dates back to 1995, recognizes the best defensive player in the FCS.

Patterson was chosen to the STATS All-America second team and the All-CAA first team in 2018. The Black Bears’ cornerback made 47 tackles, recorded three interceptions and ranked third in FCS with 22 pass breakups. A three-year starter and two-time all-conference honoree, Patterson has had 10 or more pass breakups each season.

Robinson missed all of last season due to injury, but was a consensus All-American in 2017 after recording 51 tackles, seven interceptions and nine pass breakups. The cornerback played a key role for a JMU’s nationally ranked defense in 2017 that helped the Dukes advance to the FCS national championship game.

Voting is determined via national panel of sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers, and other dignitaries.

Strange as it may sound, there’s no place University of New Hampshire safety Pop Lacey would rather have Thanksgiving dinner this year than the UNH dining hall. Lacey’s preference has less to do with the quality of the food served on campus than it does with the length of his team’s season.
