Howard University’s Antoine Bethea has been selected to the Buck Buchanan Watch checklist for the second straight year. The Buck Buchanan Award is presented to the top defensive player in 1-AA annually. Bethea is among 16 players who made the list.
A 5-10, 185-pound senior safety from Newport News, VA, Bethea was named to All-MEAC and the Sheridan Broadcasting Network (SBN) Black College All-American first teams for the past two years. He is among a select group of players who have earned that distinction.
Bethea led the Bison with 99 total tackles and three interceptions in 2004 and has ranked among all 1-AA players in solo tackles the past two seasons.
The winner of the award will be honored on December 15, 2005.
