(WSYR-TV) — Turns out, national college football writers were pleased with Sean Tucker’s performance too. 

The star running back for the Orange picked up two All-American honors from ESPN and The Athletic

Tucker was tabbed as a first teamer by the World Wide Leader and named to The Athletic’s second team

During his sophomore season, Tucker set the program single-season rushing record with 1,496 yards. That was good enough to finish fourth nationally. He also scored 14 touchdowns and had a program-record nine 100-yard rushing games, including seven straight – also a program record. 

Along with becoming a semifinalist for the Maxwell and Doak Walker Awards, Tucker is expected to earn more All-American honors when NCAA’s teams are named Thursday, December 9.
