SRU's Fusco garners second team All-America honors
PITTSBURG, Kans. - Brandon Fusco, a Slippery Rock University safety and environmental management major from Cranberry Township, was named Monday to Don Hansen's Football Gazette NCAA Division II All-America second-team honors.
The All-America honor culminated a series of awards garnered by Fusco, who is the team's center.
He earlier earned first-team All-Super Region One honors from the Football Gazette and Daktronics Inc., finished third in the regional balloting for the Gene Upshaw Division II Lineman of the Year Award and received first-team All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference-Western Division status for the second consecutive season. He was also named as The Rock's Offensive MVP.
Fusco has been a starter at center for all three of his collegiate campaigns after being redshirted as a true freshman in 2006. He was the mainstay of a Rock offensive line that led the way to the Green and White ranking sixth in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference in rushing offense (146.36 yards per game) and eighth in scoring offense (25.2 points per game).
