Deone Bucannon’s last collegiate game was also the very last NCAA game of the season.

The Vanden High graduate and four-year starter for Washington State suited up for the North in a 20-10 loss to the South in the Senior Bowl at Mobile, Ala., Sunday.

The Cougars’ all-time leading tackler had three tackles, one solo and one assisted in the first quarter, one assisted in the second.

Bucannon was the first Washington State player to participate in the game since Brandon Gibson in 2009.

Earlier this month, Bucannon was awarded the 2013 College Football Elite Defensive Back trophy.
