Despite a difficult entrance into the Big South Conference, the Robert Morris football team still picked up some hardware. Junior linebacker Aniello Buzzacco was named to the 2020-21 All-Big South First Team.

In the Colonials’ three games this season, Buzzacco made 39 tackles, leading the Big South with 13 tackles per game.

In the Colonials’ first game of the spring season against James Madison, Buzzacco posted 15 tackles, the third-highest of his career.

The Colonials finished the 2021 spring season with an 0-3 record, including 0-2 in Big South conference play.

Robert Morris will begin the 2021 fall season on the road as they travel to Dayton on Saturday, September 4 to take on the Flyers.
