Wisniewski Gets All-American Award

Penn State guard Stefen Wisniewski has been selected Penn State’s 95th first team All-American.

The senior standout was named to the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) All-America Team, the first All-America squad to be announced for the 2010 campaign. The AFCA has selected an All-America team annually since 1945.

A starter in 37 of the last 38 games, Wisniewski is the 81st Penn State football student-athlete to earn first team All-America recognition, a total of 95 times, dating back to W.T. (Mother) Dunn’s selection to the Walter Camp All-America squad in 1906.

Wisniewski is the Nittany Lions’ 78th first team All-American under Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno. Penn State has had at least one All-American in 40 of his 45 years as head coach, with nine first team All-America honorees in the past six seasons.
