 Charlotte,  NC  (SportsNetwork.com) - Pittsburgh senior defensive tackle Aaron
 Donald was named the recipient of the 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy honoring the
 nation's most outstanding college football defensive player.

 other  finalists after recording 54 tackles, including 26 1/2 for loss, and 10
 sacks in 12 games this season.
 
 The  Pittsburgh native  is the first Panther defender to earn a national honor

 awards in 1980.
 
 Donald  is  also a finalist for  the Bednarik Award, which also recognizes the
 top  defensive player in college football, as well as the Lombardi and Outland
 Trophies. All three will be handed out later this week.
