Penn State: 2004-06
During the end of Joe Paterno’s run at Penn State, he rarely missed on a linebacker, but Posluszny was the best of this era. At his peak in 2005-06, he was the back-to-back Chuck Bednarik Award winner as the best defensive player in the country and was a two-time consensus All-American.
He put together consecutive seasons with 116 total tackles for the Nittany Lions and in 2005, the Nittany Lions went 11-1 with an Orange Bowl win. Not a member of St1x C1ty, Posluszny wore No. 31 as an homage to Shane Conlan and Andre Collins.
