RB Nick Singleton
No Penn State offensive player received more honors than freshman running back Nick Singleton. Singleton was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year after rushing for 941 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 11 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown.
Additionally, Singleton was named Third Team All-Big Ten by both the media and coaches.
OT Olu Fashanu
Olu Fashanu may be the best player on Penn State’s roster. The left tackle, who will return next season, was named Second Team All-Big Ten by the coaches. This seems like somewhat of a shock considering Fashanu allowed only seven pressures all season and was a projected first round pick, but he did miss the final four games of the season with an injury.
C Juice Scruggs
Redshirt senior center Juice Scruggs earned a Third Team All-Big Ten nod by the coaches. Scruggs started all 12 games this season and was a key part of Penn State’s rejuvenation in the run game.
TE Brenton Strange
One player on Penn State’s offense who took a massive step forward this season was tight end Brenton Strange. Strange caught 32 passes for 362 yards and five touchdowns this season. He also greatly improved in run blocking as well. His solid senior season earned Strange a spot of the Third Team All-Big Ten by the coaches.
QB Sean Clifford
Quarterback Sean Clifford was an honorable mention by both the media and coaches. Clifford completed 63.6% of his passes this season for 2,543 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He started all 12 games this season, leading the Nittany Lions to their second 10-win season with him under center.
RB Kaytron Allen
True freshman running back Kaytron Allen was an honorable mention by the media after recording 1,002 scrimmage yards and 10 total touchdowns this season. Many expected Singleton to go off this season, but Allen was a pleasant surprise as well.
WR Parker Washington
Junior wide receiver Parker Washington was an honorable mention by both the media and coaches after catching 46 passes for 611 yards and two touchdowns. Washington played in only 10 games this season due to a season-ending injury.
OG Hunter Nourzad
Cornell transfer offensive lineman played both guard and center for Penn State this season and his versatility earned him an honorable mention by both the media and coaches.
OG Sal Wormley
Another key member of Penn State’s offensive line, guard Sal Wormley was also an honorable mention by both the media and coaches. If he returns next season, Wormley will be a valuable member of the offensive line in 2023.
OL Bryce Effner
The Swiss Army knife of Penn State’s offensive line, Bryce Effner was an honorable mention by the media for his work at both tackle and guard. Effner was the first man off the bench when an injury occurred and played well when called upon.
