Kansas State Football 2012: B.J. Finney Anchors Offensive Line

B.J. Finney is just a sophomore, but is in his third year in the Kansas State football program. Those three years have seen Finney improve sharply, and he enters the 2012 season as a team captain and a Rimington Award finalist for the nation's top center.

Finney is being asked to lead a newer group of offensive linemen in Manhattan, a season after K-State made it to the Cotton Bowl and finished 10-3.

As a center, Finney feels like he is in charge, and looks forward to assuming an important role on the offensive line, as this story from the Kansas City Star says.

Finney was a freshman All-American and honorable mention All-Big 12. The 20-year-old is a former walk-on who turned down an offer from Ohio University to stay closer to home. His official Kansas State bio lists him as a pre-med major.

The Wildcats rushed for 2,411 yards as a team last season and ran the ball more than twice as much as they passed it.
