Get To Know Your Orange Man - #32, FB Travon Burke

Get to know Syracuse native Travon Burke.

Name: Travon Burke

Position: Fullback or, according to SUA, "Full Back."

Year: Junior

Height: 6'1"

Weight: 245

Hometown: Syracuse, NY

High School: Corcoran

2012 Stats: None to speak of.

2013 Projections: Burke is unlikely to see too much time on offense as he sits third on the FB depth chart. But he's a prime candidate for some special teams action.

How'd He Get Here?: Burke was an All-CNY talent and was named Defensive MVP of the Upstate-Downstate Game in 2009. However, he never received any offers. His brother played for Tyrone Wheatley at Eastern Michigan and was kind enough to put in a good word for his younger bro. Wheatley offered Burke a non-scholarship chance and here we are.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing.

Money Quote: "My first plan is to graduate. After that, if football is still here, then I’d love to do it. But if not, I just want to be a successful person that can take care of his family."
