Patriot League All-Stars

When the Patriot League named its 25th anniversary teams in 2015, the roster of all-stars included 64 Bison athletes. Another three Bucknell football players had been honored five years earlier, when the league announced that sport's 25th anniversary all-star team.

(When the league began in 1986, football was the only sport. It expanded to an all-sport conference in the 1990-91 season and changed its name from the Colonial League to the Patriot League.)
