Bonani is Bulls' lone first-team All-Big East pick



As can be expected for a USF team that finished last in the Big East standings, just one Bulls player was named to the conference's postseason all-conference first team: senior kicker Maikon Bonani, who reset most of the Bulls' kicking records.


Bonani was alone on the first team, but the Bulls placed four on the second team: guard/tackle Mark Popek, defensive tackle Cory Grissom, linebacker Sam Barrington and punter Justin Brockhaus-Kann. All five players honored from USF were seniors on the 2012 team.

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was the league's Offensive Player of the Year, while Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene took home the Defensive Player of the Year. Temple return specialist Matt Brown was Special Teams Player of the Year, and teammate Tyler Matakevich was the league's Rookie of the Year. Louisville's Charlie Strong and Rutgers' Kyle Flood shared the Coach of the Year honors.
