Benjamin J. Isaac Finney II (b. Oct. 26, 1991) didn't merit much of a writeup at this time last year. He still was too much of an unknown quantity, despite the good things the coaches were saying about him.

A year later, it's safe to say things have changed. As a sophomore, he's a Rimington Trophy candidate, a team captain and a probable four-year starter at center in the making.

Finney's almost like a clone of Charlie Dickey, lining up out there with the ball in his hand and channeling his will into the captaincy of the offensive line. But when he talks, he sounds more like a young (and beefier) Bill Snyder.

Finney, like fellow team captains Arthur Brown and Collin Klein, is a player who embodies the team concept, and such players deserve all the accolades I can offer.

Finney was a state champion wrestler at Andale High School, and wrestlers tend to make pretty good offensive linemen. Couple that with a blue-collar work ethic and it's no wonder he's made such a strong impact so quickly.
