Starr On Buchanan List

Starr On Buchanan List

South Dakota linebacker Tyler Starr is one of 20 finalists for the Buck Buchanan Award announced Monday by The Sports Network. The Award honors the top defensive player in the FCS.

Starr is the nation’s active career leader in forced fumbles with 13. He is also second in solo tackles for loss with 39 and fourth in total sacks with 27. He earned those achievements in just three years of play.

This season, Starr led the Missouri Valley Football Conference in sacks (9.0), tackles for loss (15.0) and forced fumbles (4). He finished second on the team in tackles with 71. He also had an interception and was credited with four pass breakups.

A panel of sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries select the Buchanan Award, which is in its 19th year. Voting reflects only the regular season. The winner will be announced Dec. 16 at the FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation.
