MCSORLEY NAMED CAMP PLAYER OF THE WEEK
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Junior quarterback Trace McSorley (Ashburn, Va.) earned the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week award after his performance against No. 19 Michigan. He is the ninth Penn State player to claim Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors, but the first offensive selection.
The last Penn State player to earn Walter Camp weekly honors was Brandon Bell last season vs. Michigan State.
McSorley was 17-of-26 for 282 passing yards and a touchdown against the Wolverines. He also hurt Michigan with his legs, recording 76 rushing yards and a career-high three touchdowns. McSorley has thrown a touchdown pass in 22 consecutive games, dating to the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl, extending his Penn State record. The streak is the second-longest active streak in the FBS (Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield). He also had his 12th career game with both a rushing and passing touchdown. McSorley is the first Penn State quarterback to run for three touchdowns in a game since at least 1982.
