Dillon Buechel has received plenty of recognition for his ability to throw a football, but Duquesne’s senior signal caller deserves a little love for his fashion sense, too.
Buechel appeared at #NECFB Social Media Day (back on July 21) wearing a light, slim-fitting two-piece suit that most definitely turned some heads during his walk up the red carpet and into the MetLife Stadium Coaches’ Club.
Arguably the best-dressed quarterback in the FCS, Buechel wasn’t the lone NEC athlete to show some style.
Bryant defensive back Chuckie Wingate went with the three-piece suit and wore it well.
As a group, Duquesne received social media attention for the neckties worn by Buechel and Christian Kuntz.

It was a good week for defending NEC champions. Each of the five polls featured last year’s league winner in the No. 1 spot.
One thing we learned was that the NEC’s New England-based contingent is fertile ground for cross country runners. The top-three in both the men’s and women’s polls were comprised of Sacred Heart, Central Connecticut and Bryant.
It was a great week for New Jersey and the sport of collegiate bowling.
