Big 30 team picks Bunk

Kris Bunk

The selection of players for the annual Big 30 Charities football game that puts the top senior players from New York and Pennsylvania against each other has begun with Kris Bunk of Eisenhower being named to the Pennsylvania squad.

Bunk, the son of Heather and Kris Bunk Sr. of Sugar Grove, was certainly a force to be reckoned with for the Eisenhower Knights over his career.

He was a two-year starter for the Knights and was named all-region, all-district and all-state both of those years at tight end.

Bunk had 41 receptions for 750 yards, averaging over 18 yards per reception over his career, while scoring 12 touchdowns from his tight end position.

Defensively, he had 15.5 tackles for loss and eight quarterback sacks as a defensive end. He also completed his only pass attempt on a successful 2-point conversion.

“Kris is just an unbelievably hard worker,” Eisenhower head coach Jim Penley said. “To get to the level he has reached to be recognized across the state as an all-state selection speaks volumes about him. He has a great attitude and keeps things loose with his sense of humor. He is completely capable of being a dominant blocker and was one of the best receivers on the field in every game he played. He is a high-motor player on defense and set a great tempo for us defensively. We will miss him next year.”

Bunk will continue his football career at Allegheny College, where he will major in communications.
