McSorley selected AP Preseason All-America

STATE COLLEGE — Senior quarterback Trace McSorley has been selected second-team Associated Press Preseason All-America. He is one of 10 Big Ten student-athletes named to the preseason first or second team.

McSorley, who is a two-time captain, enters his final season in the Blue & White having thrown a touchdown pass in 28-straight games, the longest active streak in FBS. He holds the Penn State career records for completion percentage (61.8), passing efficiency (152.9), passing touchdowns (59) and total offense (8,268).

In 2017, McSorley became just the second player in Big Ten history to have 25 passing touchdowns and 10 rushing scores in the same season, joining Ohio State’s J.T. Barrett (2014 and 2017).
