Default Posloszny wins Bednarik

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny won the Chuck Bednarik Trophy on Thursday night, given to the best defensive player in the country.

The other finalists were Ohio State linebacker A.J. Hawk and Maryland linebackers D'Qwell Jackson.

Posluszny led a resurgence at Penn State. The Nittany Lions (10-1) won the Big Ten and will play in the Orange Bowl after winning just seven games the previous two seasons.

Posluszny ranks fourth in the Big Ten with 111 tackles and an average of 10.1 tackles per game. He has 11 tackles for a loss and three sacks.

He is just the fourth player in school history to record more than 100 tackles in consecutive seasons.

Georgia defensive end David Pollack won the award last season.

Poz wins Butkus!!!


ORLANDO, Fla. -- Penn State's Paul Posluszny, who helped the No. 3 Nittany Lions earn a share of the Big Ten championship, won the Butkus Award as the nation's best linebacker on Saturday night.

The award, given by the Orlando Downtown Athletic Club, is Posluszny's second national honor. He won the Bednarik Award as the nation's best defensive player on Thursday.

"They're both huge honors, but I'd have to say, as a linebacker, that this one means a lot more to me," Posluszny said. "Playing linebacker, to win the Butkus Award means you're the top person at your position and that's the biggest thing you can do."

Posluszny beat out Ohio State's A.J. Hawk and Alabama's DeMeco Ryans in becoming the second Penn State linebacker to win the Butkus Award in its 21-year history. LaVar Arrington won in 1999.

This season, Posluszny has 111 tackles, including 11 for loss, and three sacks.

He's a junior, and if he enters the draft he will be taken in the first round. He is a great linebacker!!! His game is very similar to A.J. Hawk's... he is very fast, and give it 110% every snap. He is one of the best linebackers to ever play at Penn State...

Here are some quotes on Poz from former Penn State, and Steeler great Jack Ham...


"I truly believe," Jack Ham was saying the other day, "he's the best linebacker ever to play at Penn State."

"It's such a different game now than when we played," Ham said. "Today, you have to be half-strong safety, half-linebacker to play. We weren't asked to cover the way these guys are. They didn't stretch the field on us. There were no three- and four-wide receiver sets. A lot of linebackers have to go to the bench in passing situations now. Not Posluszny. He does it all."

"I can't think of a linebacker here who played the run as well as he does," Ham said. "Shane Conlan, maybe ...

"Watch him. He never gets knocked off his feet. He plays off blocks so well. He never misses tackles."

"I've always thought [Dennis] Onkotz was the best linebacker in pass coverage here," Ham said. "This kid might be better. He understands the passing game so well."

"I don't know how fast [Posluszny] is in the 40, but I'll bet you'd be amazed if you timed him for 10 yards," Ham said. "He has that burst to the football."

"He shouldn't leave early," Ham said. "He should take a page out of A.J. Hawk's book and stay for another year."

"There's too much of an upside for [Posluszny] to stay," Ham said. "He would get so much stronger, number one. He would become that much better. He would only enhance his draft status. I don't know where he'd be picked if he came out now, but he'll be a top-10 pick the next year."

"The best ever here," Ham said, knowingly.

"No doubt about it."
