Donald, Robinson, Urschel Named All-Americans

Updated: Wednesday, December 18 2013, 02:49 AM EST

Pitt senior defensive tackle Aaron Donald continues to put together a post-season awards haul rarely seen in school history.

Tuesday, Donald was named a first-team All-American to three separate lists, Associated Press, Sporting News, and Walter Camp, earning him "Consensus All-American" status. He is likely to be named to the Football Writers Association of American and Coaches Association lists later this week, which will make Donald the 10th unanimous All-American in Pitt history.

Larry Fitzgerald (2003) was Pitt's last unanimous All-American. Hugh Green (1980) was the Panthers' last defensive player to earn unanimous distinction. Green was also a unanimous selection in 1979.

Donald led the nation with 2.6 tackles for loss per game. He bame the first Panthers player to win four national awards, taking home the Nagurski, Outland, Bednarik, and Lombardi.

Penn State junior wide receiver Allen Robinson was named to the Sporting News and CBS Sports First Team on Tuesday. Robinson, along with senior guard John Urschel, was also named to the Associated Press' Third Team.

Robinson set Penn State records for receptions (97) and receiving yardage (1,432) in 2013. He also had six touchdown catches.
