Pitt senior defensive tackle Aaron Donald was named one of five finalists Thursday for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which is presented annually to college football's most outstanding defensive player.

Donald will travel to Charlotte on Dec. 9 for the Charlotte Touchdown Club's banquet where the winner will be revealed. The other finalists are Michigan State linebacker Darqueze Dennard, Florida State defensive back Lamarcus Joyner, Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley and Missouri defensive end Michael Sam.

Donald also was named this week as one of six semifinalists for the Outland Trophy (best interior lineman) and is a candidate for the Bednarik Award, Rotary Lombardi Award and the Lott IMPACT Trophy.

Donald, a Penn Hills graduate, leads the nation in tackles for loss (2.3 per game) and is sixth in sacks (1.0 per game).
