Welcome to The Buccaneer’s sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level.
We sat down this week with senior kicker/punter Jack O’Connor, who led the Shore Conference in made field goals this past season, and was a key member of the Bucs’ offense.
