Devon Still was named the Big Ten Nagurski-Woodson Defensive Player of the Year on Monday afternoon, just two days after being named the conference's top defensive lineman and a unanimous first-team All-Big Ten selection.
The defensive tackle from Wilmington, Del. has been the anchor of a stout Penn State defense that ranks eighth in the country in points allowed (15.67 per game) and 11th in yards of total offense allowed (300.92 per game). The 6-foot-5, 310-pound senior co-captain ranks second in the conference with 15 solo tackles for loss. For the season, he has 55 tackles, including four sacks, as well as a forced fumble and fumble recovery.
The award is named after late Minnesota star Bronko Nagurski, who went on to enjoy a Hall-of-Fame career with the Chicago Bears, and former Michigan standout Charles Woodson, now a perennial Pro-Bowl selection with the Green Bay Packers.
Wisconsin running back Montee Ball was named the Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller was named the Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year and Michigan's Brady Hoke was the Dave McLain Coach of the Year.
