Academic All-American Buckeyes

OSU FootballOhio State’s Anthony Gonzalez, Stan White, and James Laurinaitis were all named to the 2006 Academic All-American team, recognized for outstanding performance in the classroom.

Penn State’s Posluszny took top honors as Academic All-American of the Year (an honor once held by OSU’s own Craig Krenzel).

In fact, the Big Ten dominated the Academic All-American team, getting 11 places. More first-team players were selected from Ohio State, Penn State, Indiana, Iowa, and Wisconsin than from all other Division I-A conferences combined.

It’s one thing to root for a given team on the football field, but it’s always great to see the players who take college seriously getting recognized. Way to go, Big 10!
