This is what you call a “I have enough material for three tiny articles but I’m going to cram them all together” article. This is mostly a sportless BC week; take what you can get.
Without further ado, ISSUE ONE! (in John McLaughlin voice): Luke Kuechly’s Awards List, Updated
As we know, since the original article a few days ago, Kuechly has won even more awards. I knew about the Nagurski Trophy yet to come, but I didn’t know virtually everybody in America had their own All-America team.
This is the new list, including every accolade he received until yesterday:
• Unanimous All-ACC First Team selection
• ACC Defensive Player of the Year
• Butkus Award
• Rotary Lombardi Award
• Walter Camp First-Team All-American
• Football Writers’ Association of America All-American
• Lott Impact Trophy
• Nagurski Award
• Associated Press First-Team All American
• Sports Illustrated First-Team All American
I’d say that’s a pretty good season.
You probably don’t know this — or maybe you do and just don’t care — but Fansided, the network of blogs you are currently visiting, has placed recent emphasis on starting and maintaining Facebook fan pages. I started one for Soaring to Glory some time ago and left it dormant for months, but intend to update it as needed.
Soaring to Glory has had tremendous success in 2011, being rated by Fansided NCAA’s most recent internal review as one of the best college blogs on the network, and boasting 5-digit monthly pageviews. One way to drive this internal rating even higher is to increase my “reach,” and we can do that by you liking me on Facebook. I don’t post on there nearly as much as I do on Twitter, so you don’t have to worry about me spamming your news feed, but I will keep a presence there.
If, by chance, you aren’t following me on Twitter yet, you can do that too. The two buttons directly below will, from time to time, appear at the bottom of regular articles.
Finally, Boston College is offering ticket deals again. Clicking on the picture below will take you to the BC ticket portal; be sure to get your hands on some for yourself or the BC Eagle(s) in your life.
