 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o has won the Walter Camp national player of the year.
The award, announced Thursday by Walter Camp Football Foundation prior to the College Football Awards show, is voted on by the 124 Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors.
Te'o beat out finalists and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, USC receiver Marqise Lee and Oregon running back Kenjon Barner.
The Fighting Irish senior becomes the third defensive player to win and fourth Notre Dame player to be selected. It is also the fourth national award Te'o has won, having already been awarded the Butkus Award, Bronco Nagurski Trophy and Lombardi Award.
A Heisman finalist, Te'o is also up for the Maxwell and Bednarik awards on Thursday.
