He was named a first-team selection by the Associated Press, Walter Camp Foundation, Football Writers Association of America, Sports Illustrated, Sporting News and American Football Coaches Association. The other six consensus All-Americans in school history were (* — unanimous): Defensive tackle Dennis Byrd — 1967* Offensive lineman Bill Yoest — 1973* Running back Ted Brown — 1978* Center Jim Ritcher — 1978*, 1979* Kicker Marc Primanti — 1996 Wide receiver Torry Holt — 1998 National Awards Bradley Chubb won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (right), presented by the Charlotte Touchdown Club and voted upon by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) to select the best defensive player in college football. He also took home the Ted Hen- dricks Award, which is given to the best defensive end nationally. The senior becomes just the fourth NC State football player to win a national award.
