Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still was named Monday as a finalist for two prestigious honors – the Chuck Bednarik Award, given by the Maxwell Football Club of Philadelphia to the defensive player of the year, and the Outland Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top lineman.
Still, of Wilmington, was named a finalist last week for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which is presented by the Football Writers Association of America to the nation’s best defensive player.
Still joins Alabama linebacker Dont’a Hightower and LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu as Bednarik Award finalists. The Outland Trophy list has Stanford guard David DeCastro and Alabama offensive tackle Barrett Jones with Still as finalists.
The winners of both awards will be announced during a special ESPN college football awards show on Dec. 8.
