Yazujian on CoSIDA Academic All-American first team

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Senior long snapper Tyler Yazujian earned a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-America first team this season after an appearance on the second team a year ago. Yazujian is the 16th student-athlete in program history to be a two-time Academic All-American.

Yazujian's Academic All-American honor is the 65th for Nittany Lions, which ranks second in Division I football history (FBS and FCS). Overall, Penn State has 194 Academic All-Americans, which ranks fifth among all schools at all levels and fourth among Division I institutions.

The Royersford, Pennsylvania native has a 3.87 grade point average in information sciences and technology -- security and risk analysis. In addition to his CoSIDA Academic All-American and All-District accolades, Yazujian is a two-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and two-time Academic All-Big Ten choice. He is a seven-time Dean's List selection and has two perfect 4.0 GPA semesters. He has handled all of the long snapping duties each of the last three seasons. With his reliable snapping, kicker Tyler Davis is off to the best kicking start in program history, hitting 21-of-22 career field goal attempts and all 41 extra point tries. Davis broke the school record earlier this season with 18 consecutive field goal attempts made.
