ATLANTA (AP) – Alabama defensive end Jonathan Allen has claimed the Chuck Bednarik Award as the top defensive player in college football.
The other finalists Thursday night were Myles Garrett of Texas A&M and Jabrill Peppers of Michigan.
Allen became the first player from Alabama to win the Bednarik Award. He already won another award as the nation’s best defensive player, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy.
Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson has won the Outland Trophy as the nation’s top interior lineman.
Robinson is a key player on the nation’s top-ranked team, which won the Southeastern Conference with a 13-0 record and will return to Atlanta to face Washington in the national semifinals on Dec. 31.
The award was presented Thursday night during a ceremony at the College Football Hall of Fame.
Robinson was chosen over Pat Elflein of Ohio State and Cody O’Connell of Washington State.
