SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) - Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin has won the Burlsworth Award, given to the top college football player who began his career as a walk-on.
McGloin helped the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 record this season, setting school records for yards passing (3,266) and touchdowns (24) in a season. The senior also holds the school mark for career passing touchdowns (46).
The West Scranton (Pa.) native's only scholarship offer out of high school was from Lehigh. He helped Penn State win eight of its final 10 games this season, throwing for at least 200 yards and a touchdown in all 12 games.
The other finalists were Michigan safety Jordan Kovacs and San Jose State offensive tackle David Quessenberry.
The award is named for former Arkansas offensive lineman Brandon Burlsworth.
