UNI's Schult wins Buck Buchanan Award

(STATS) - It's only fitting that Karter Schult finally became the first Northern Iowa player to win the STATS FCS Buck Buchanan Award. The Tripoli, Iowa, native has made it very clear that playing for the Panthers was a dream come true.

Schult was given the highest individual honor for a defensive player in the FCS on Friday night at the STATS FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation in Frisco, Texas. The race wasn't close with Sam Houston State junior defensive end P.J. Hall finishing second and Missouri State senior linebacker Dylan Cole coming in third.

A national panel of over 150 sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries selected Schult from 25 finalists. He received 68 first-place votes and 473 points, while Hall had 15 first-place votes and 269 points and Cole collected 10 first-place votes and 168 points.
