Dwayne Haskins Jr., Ohio, is the offensive player of the year, and Michigan defender Devin Bush is the defensive player of the year when Associated Press's All-Big Ten conference team was released Wednesday.
Freshman recipient Rondale Moore of Purdue was named Newcomer of the Year, and Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald was named Coach of the Year after leading the Wildcats into the Big Ten championship for the first time.
Michigan had seven players in the first team, including five from the country's highest defensive line. Wisconsin had five first-place finishes, and Ohio State's conference master had three.
Haskins set Big Ten records in his first year as a starter and led the nation with 4,580 pass yards and 47 touchdown passes. He has more than 300 meters in nine games, including five games over 400 meters.
Bush was a disturbing force for Michigan. He led the team with 80 tackles and was ranked second in his linebacker position in sacks (five) and takes for loss (9.5).
Moore occupied two places as a wide receiver and all-purpose player. Moores's 103 receptions are the second highest of the nation's and one season's of a big-ten player, and his 1,164 receipts head the conference. Moore also rushed for 203 yards on 18 trages and returned punts and kicks for the Boilermakers.
Four of the five Wisconsin picks for the first team are repeat picks – Jonathan Taylor, offensive players Michael Deiter and Beau Benzschawel and linebacker T.J. Edwards Taylor was a unanimous decision. The defensive lineman Dre & # 39; Mont Jones from Ohio made also the first team for the second year in a row.
Fitzgerald, a 13th-century coach in the northwestern United States, led the Wildcats in the Big Ten to an 8-1 record, achieving the best results in program history. They went 3-0 in the non-conference game and had to overcome a series of injuries to win their first title in the West Division.
The All-Big Ten team was selected by 27 authors and broadcasters covering the conference.
