NEW BERLIN – Milford Academy’s Travon Van and Malcolm Bunche, two of the Falcons’ more highly recruited players this season, may get the opportunity to reacquaint themselves over the next four years of college.
Van, a running back who already has six rushing touchdowns in two games this season for the Falcons, will attend the University of Florida next year. Bunche, an offensive tackle who is the son of former NFL player Curtis Bunche, will play for the Miami Hurricanes.
Van grew up in Southern California, and attended Helix High School in La Mesa. It’s the same school that graduated NFL players Reggie Bush and Alex Smith. Bush won the Heisman Trophy three years ago and is a running back with the New Orleans Saints. Smith was the number one pick in the NFL Draft four years ago with the San Francisco 49ers.
