Flo A Finalist

Dartmouth linebacker Flo Orimolade has been named one of 25 finalists for the Buck Buchanan Award (link) which honors the FCS defensive player of the year. He is the only Ivy Leaguer among the finalists.

From a Dartmouth release:
A preseason All-American, Orimolade certainly lived up to his billing by leading the Ivy League with nine sacks and five forced fumbles, while ranking second with 14.5 tackles for a loss and fifth with 83 total tackles. On a per game basis, the senior from Burtonsville, Maryland, leads the nation in forced fumbles (0.5), plus ranks 11th in sacks (0.9) and 22nd in tackles for a loss (1.45).
