All-American Selection: 1985, 1986

Outside linebacker, 1985 and 1986, Frewsburg, N.Y., selected by NEA in 1985 and by Walter Camp, The Football News, Football Writers, Football Coaches, Associated Press, United Press International, and College and Pro Football Newsweekly in 1986. The sixth Penn State two-time All-American, Conlan led the 1986 squad in tackles with 79, including a team-high 63 solo stops. In the 1986 National Championship game with Miami (Fla.) in the Fiesta Bowl, Conlan's second interception, and his 38-yard return to the five-yard line, set up the Lions' winning touchdown. The 1987 National Football League Defensive Rookie-of-the-Year and No. 1 draft pick of Buffalo, Conlan played with the Bills (1987-92) and the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams (1993-95). He lives in Sewickley, Pa.
