ECAC honors Abare

Bobby Abare, the leading tackler and captain of the 2008 Yale football team, added another honor to his growing collection when he was named to the All-ECAC Football Championship Subdivision team.

Since the end of the season Abare has been named to the All-Ivy and All-New England first teams, finished 11th in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award which is awarded annually to the premier FCS defensive player. He was also named to pretty much every FCS All-American team and on Thursday he will be a co-recipient of the Bulger Lowe Award by the Boston Gridiron Club as the MVP in New England college football.
