0

The awards keep rolling in for the Nittany Lions, as Bill O’Brien was selected as the AT&T ESPN Coach of the Year, and Michael Mauti was named to the ESPN All-American team as of Saturday night.

O’Brien has been identified as a finalist for several different coach of the year awards this season, including the¬†Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year, the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year, and the Maxwell Collegiate Coach of the Year.

Mauti becomes the 85th All-American in Penn State history, after finishing the season with 96 tackles and 3 interceptions. But what really mattered was the emotional leadership Mauti provided to this team and fan base all season.

If you’re losing count of all of Penn State’s postseason awards, you’re not alone. There are seemingly dozens of organizations and media groups that are in the game of college football awards. The next few weeks should be an exciting time to be a Penn State fan, as other groups name their Coach of the Year and All-American team.
