Penn State players were named to the watch list for the Maxwell Award for the College Football Player of the Year (Zach Zwinak) and Bednarik Award for Defensive Player of the Year (Deion Barnes). Seven players from PSU have won the Maxwell; Richie Lucas 1959, Glen Ressler 1964, Mike Reid 1969, John Cappelletti 1973, Chuck Fusina 1978, Kerry Collins 1994, and Larry Johnson 2002. We are tied for the most all-time with Notre Dame since Te'o received the honor last year. On the Bednarik side, we have also fared quite well, having won four times; LaVar Arrington 1999, Paul Posluszny 2005 and 2006, Dan Connor 2007. That means PSU has accounted for 22% of the awards.
