Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is a destroyer of worlds

Does Carolina Panthers Luke Kuechly terrify you? Well, the NFL’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year should. He ended 225 plays on his own in his first two years (that’s solo tackles + sacks + passes defended + interceptions + fumble recoveries. I’m trying to jump into the advanced stats game). This season? Uncle Luke (quality nickname work by Deangelo Williams, delivered...

Panthers' All-Pro LB Kuechly focused on improvement, not recognition

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It seems pretty safe to say that if Luke Kuechly played his football in New York that he'd be a darling of all the advertising agencies on Madison Avenue. After all, what's not to like? In two short years in the NFL, Kuechly captured the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year Award, the youngest player to ever win it, as well take home Defensive Rookie...

Most of you might have seen this already, but Gene is now teaching people the basics of football.Adding an essay to the BC application...

Luke Kuechly on Patriots' Radar, But Would Need Big Draft-Day Slide to Land in New England

Inside linebacker Luke Kuechly is one of the best defensive prospects to come out of Boston College in years, and he's got the on-field ability and leadership style to take over an NFL unit for the next decade. The Patriots have shown plenty of interest in Kuechly, too. They interviewed him at the scouting combine and sent at least two scouts to watch him during his pro day....

Luke Kuechly's Terrific Instincts, Work Ethic Make Him Special NFL Prospect (Video)

Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly won nearly every major defensive award last season, but he's still finding a way to further impress those who watch him. Kuechly turned heads at BC's pro day, showing why he's projected to go in the first half of the first round on draft day.

Kuechly huge day at the Combine and how it benefits his teammates

Since you couldn't question his productivity, NFL doubters have wondered about Luke Kuechly's athleticism. Monday at the NFL Combine he put the doubters to rest.

With the head turning show, the question now is how far up the draft...

Dick Butkus personally delivers Butkus Award

It's not every day that a Trophy's namesake flies to Needham to attend a team banquet, but that's what happened Sunday. In an unusual and surprise move Dick Butkus handed Luke Kuechly the 2011 Dick Butkus Award for being the nation's best college linebacker. It is an individual award and certainly doesn't replace a bowl trip, but I think it was a nice way for...
