The contributions of offensive linemen can often go unnoticed in college football.

In Army’s option offense, the M.O.B. (Malicious Offensive Line Brotherhood) is vital to the team’s success. And, Connor Finucane’s presence was a steady force for Army during the 2021 season.

Finucane, now a junior guard, took the most 2021 snaps of any returning Army offensive player. He finished second on the Black Knights with 681 snaps played (behind offensive lineman Noah Knapp’s 719). Finucane was one of three offensive players to start all 13 games in 2021 along with Knapp and slotback Brandon Walters.

Army graduated five of its top eight offensive linemen (Knapp, Mason Kolinchak, Kam Holloway, Dean Powell and Zack Ward) but return starters Finucane, senior center and captain Connor Bishop and junior tackle Boobie Law.

Finucane, Bishop and Law combined to play 1,690 snaps in 2021. The rest of Army’s returning players took a combined 3,023 snaps.

    Man, the last few snaps Laws took sure were critical in the Bowl game.
