The Big Ten Awards were announced earlier tonight and we had several guys honored with second team all-Big Ten honors and one guy with a first team honor.
First of all, we have Kawann Short, who was a First Team All-Big Ten selection as a defensive tackle according to the media. The conference coaches placed him on the second team, but Short was the only Boilermaker that received First Team honors by the coaches or the media.
We did have several Second Team honorees though. According to the coaches, Carson Wiggs was the Second Team All-conference kicker, and Ricardo Allen was Second Team All-Conference at cornerback. Cody Webster was also the second team All-Conference punter according to the coaches.
With the media, Webster was also a Second Team pick, so I guess that makes him a consensus Second Team All-Conference.
