All America Honors for Culver Stockton Lineman
Culver Stockton offensive tackle Andrew Rupcich receives All America Honors.
The 6’7” 305 pound junior is on the America Football Coaches Association-NAIA All America First Team announced today. (Dec 5) Rupcich is the fifth Wildcat in program history to receive first team All America honors. He’s the first Culver Stockton Wildcat All American since wide receiver Preston Nicholson in 2007. He’s also a two time Heart of America Athletic Conference first team selection.
Rupcich anchors a Wildcat line that paved the way for one of the most explosive passing attacks in the NAIA. Rupcich and his line mates allowed just 13 sacks for the entire 2019 season.
Rupcich also gained national attention with a 44 yard pass in this season’s home game against Benedictine. The play went viral on social media and was featured at halftime of the Chiefs-Colts Sunday night football game.
The Wildcats finished the 2019 campaign with their first on-field winning season since 2001, finishing 6-5 overall. C-SC also placed second in the Heart of America Athletic Conference’s North Division with a 4-1 league mark.
