NORWALK, Conn. Norwalks Silas Redd, a sophomore running back at Penn State, earned second team All-Big 10 honors on Monday. Redd played in high school at King in Stamford.
Redd rushed for 1,207 yards in 12 games for the Nittany Lions and scored seven touchdowns.
Penn State (9-3) finished the regular season Saturday with a 45-7 loss to Wisconsin. The Nittany Lions will learn this week where they will play in a bowl game.
Redd suffered a shoulder injury in a loss to Nebraska, and carried just eight times in a 20-14 win over Ohio State on Nov. 19. He had 12 carries and 66 yards against Wisconsin and made one costly fumble that led to a Badgers touchdown.
Former Stamford star Khairi Fortt played in 12 games as a linebacker for the Nittany Lions and had 31 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Penn State became embroiled in a late-season scandal sparked by allegations that Jerry Sandusky, a former long-time assistant to coach Joe Paterno, sexually molested several young boys. The charges led to the firing of Paterno.
