| No Comments | No TrackBacks

 Northwestern's Venric Mark became the 39th player in Northwestern history to be named an all-American by the Football Writers Association of America.

 

Mark made the team as a punt returner. He was the only Big Ten player on the squad.

 

Mark averaged 20-1 yards per punt return, which was tops in the nation. He became the second player in school history --- and the first since 1949 --- to return two punts for touchdowns in a season.

 

Mark also plays running back. He ranked ninth in the country this season by averaging 171.7 all-purpose yards per game.
