Mike Hull Named Third-Team AP All-American

Penn State linebacker and James Franklin man-crush Mike Hull continues to rack up awards, this time earning the distinction as an AP third-team All-American selection.

Hull is no stranger to All-American teams, earning second-team honors from both USA Today, Scout, and Fox Sports. The senior also won the Big Ten’s Butkus-Fitzgerald Linebacker of the Year award, along with a unanimous selection from coaches and the media for the All-Big Ten team. ESPN.com and BTN.com also named him to their All-Big Ten teams.

Hull led the Big Ten in tackles, and was seventh in the nation, collecting 134 on the year. Some highlights included a career-high 19 tackles and a crucial interception against Ohio State, 16 tackles against Nortwestern, and 13 on senior day against Michigan State. Hull is sixth in Penn State history with 288 tackles in his career, and also sixth in single-season tackles with his 134 this year; however, he can move into a tie for second for the single season mark with 11 tackles, a feat he’s accomplished six times this season.

The co-captain success continues a tradition of strong Nittany Lion linebackers, becoming the fifth Penn State linebacker since 2005 to earn an All-American honor, and the 24th overall since 2005.

Hull will look to dominate on defense one last time against Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl, just 11 days from now in Yankee Stadium.
