Pitt's Donald named 1st-team AP All-American

ACC Videos

Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, 4:30 p.m.
 

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is back on the practice field, preparing for Pitt's appearance Dec. 26 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, but his work during the regular season continues to get recognized.

Donald, a Penn Hills graduate, became a consensus All-American when he was named to the Associated Press first team. Donald has been named to three of the five officially recognized All-American teams, including Walter Camp and Sporting News.

If he is named this week to the American Football Coaches Association and Football Writers teams, he will be Pitt's first unanimous first-team All-American since wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in 2003.

Defensive end Hugh Green was Pitt's last unanimous defensive All-American (1979-1980).

Additionally, Donald, who led the nation with 26.5 tackles for a loss, was named to the CBSSports.com All-America team Wednesday.

Penn State guard John Urschel and wide receiver Allen Robinson were third-team selections on the Associated Press team.
