The AFCA All-America teams are in, and once again, Jaquan Brisker and Jordan Stout are represented.

Brisker, a safety with an 82.4 grade by Pro Football Focus, was named to the second team, as was Stout, a punter with a 93.8 rating that earned him a nomination for the Ray Guy Award. Both players were also named to the AP and CBS Sports All-America teams.

Brisker played in all 12 games with the Lions this season and was fourth on the team with 63 total tackles. He also had two interceptions, five passes defended and a fumble recovery.

Stout averaged 46.5 yards per punt, which ranked 16th in the nation. He also handled kicking duties for Penn State, making 34 of 36 extra points and 16 of 23 field goals.

Brisker will for sure not be returning to Happy Valley next season, while Stout has the option to come back. Stout accepting an invitation to the Reese’s Senior Bowl makes that possibility seem unlikely, however.

The AFCA, or American Football Coaches Association, has been selecting All-America teams since 1945, and that team is the only of the AFCA’s honors that are exclusively selected by the coaches themselves.
