Geoff Bacon led Army in tackles, playing middle linebacker last season.
Could Bacon be the team’s top tackler at a different position in 2013?
It’s possible. Bacon spent the majority of spring practice at free safety and finished atop the post-game spring depth chart at that position.
Another solid season could impress voters for the Lott Trophy. Bacon, who will be a junior in the fall, was one of 42 players named to the trophy’s watch list.
Bacon’s 136 tackles in 2012 were the ninth-most in a single season by an Army player. He ranked eighth in the country in total tackles last season.
