A look back at the storied career of Paul Posluszny at Penn State

Read Time:1 Minute, 22 Second


Paul Posluszny is one of the best linebackers in Penn State history and now he may be remembered as one of the best in college football history as he is on the College Football Hall of Fame ballot this year.

Posluszny is one of two players to ever be a multi-time winner of the Chuck Bednarik Award, putting him in rare company, and he is also a two-time All-Big Ten and All-American member. Dash in a Dick Butkus Award and an Orange Bowl victory to cap off his college career and you have one of the best careers a college linebacker could have without a doubt.

All in all, he accumulated 232 total tackles and forced seven turnovers for a Penn State defense that was loaded with talent. Now he hopes to be inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame after his football career has ended.
