McPherson College’s Braden Bush may have been overlooked for the KCAC first team this past football season, but the sophomore defensive back is one of only two conference players to be up for the third annual Cliff Harris Award, which is presented to the top small-college defensive player and named for the former Dallas Cowboy star.
The winner will be announced Dec. 24.
He led the KCAC in interceptions with six, two of which he returned for touchdowns. He had 90 tackles in 10 games, ranking sixth in the conference in that category. Yet, he was only picked to the second team.
Only 15 NAIA players are up for the award
