| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald has been named a first team All-American by the Associated Press.

The NCAA uses five All-America squads to determine consensus and unanimous status: AP, American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), Football Writers (FWAA), Sporting News and Walter Camp. Aaron has already been named to three of these squads (first-team selection by AP, Sporting News and Walter Camp.) The other two teams will be announced this week.

The last Pitt player to be a unanimous first-team All-American was wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in 2003.

The last Pitt defensive player to be a unanimous first-team All-American was defensive end Hugh Green in 1980. (Green was also unanimous in 1979. 

Pitt players have earned unanimous status 13 times (11 different players - Green and Bill Fralic [1983-84] were two-time unanimous picks).
