USF K Maikon Bonani named to All Big East Team

Maikon Bonani holds nearly every South Florida kicking record, and his senior season earned him All-Big East first team honors.

A rough season for the South Florida Bulls didn't stop one player from being named to the All-Big East first team, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Kicker Maikon Bonani was selected, while four other players received second-team All-Big East honors. Offensive lineman Mark Popek, defensive tackle Cory Grissom, lineback Sam Barrington and punter Justin Brockhaus-Kann were the players named to the second team. All of the men are seniors.

Bonani made 18-of-23 field goal attempts for the Bulls. That 78.3 percent is only good enough for third place in USF record books, but given that Bonani already holds three of the top five spots, including No. 1 on the all-time field goal percentage list he might be satisfied with third. Bonani also holds nearly every kicking record in USF history: he leads in field goals attempted, made and made consecutively, and he holds all the same records on extra points. He made 21 of 23 extra-point attempts in 2012.
