Know Your Bulls: #79 Gokhan Ozkan


Know your Bulls is a countdown to the kick off. If will look at every single UB football player on the roster. When the players number matches the number of days remaining then it's his turn in the spotlight.

Position: Right Tackle

From: Staten Island, New York

Started at the Right Tackle spot last season

As a two year team captain for Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School Gokhan Ozkan was named both an All-League offensive lineman during his senior season and he was listed on the second-team All-State squad as a defensive lineman his junior season.

Ozkan checks in at six foot seven and 330 pounds yet he is surprisingly mobile.

After suffering a season ending injury in 2010 Gokhan came back last season and took the starting slot for right tackle. He was a big part of Branden Oliver’s program-record 1,395 yards rushing, much of which was gained between the tackles.

Coming out of the blue and white game Ozkan is again pegged to be the starting right tackle, ahead of Jake Silas on the depth chart.
