UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State sophomore wide receiver Allen Robinson (Southfield, Mich.) was voted as the Iron Workers Local Union No. 3 "Ironman of the Game" for his outstanding offensive performance against Indiana.
Needing just one reception to pass O.J. McDuffie and Bobby Engram at the top of the single-season reception list, Robinson put an exclamation point on a breakout sophomore season against Indiana. The Michigan native hauled in 10 receptions for 197 yards and three touchdowns against the Hoosiers to become Penn State's single-season reception leader, and the program's first 70-plus reception player. Robinson is now within 17 yards (983) of a 1,000-yard season. He leads the Big Ten in touchdown receptions (11), yardage (983) and yards per game (89.4).
This year's "Ironman of the Game" winners have included Robinson for the Ohio game, Michael Zordich (Youngstown, Ohio) for the Navy game, Matt McGloin (Scranton, Pa.) for the Temple game, Bill Belton (Sicklerville, N.J.) for the Iowa game, Michael Mauti (Mandeville, La.) for the Virginia, Illinois, and the Ohio State games, respectively, Gerald Hodges(Paulsboro, N.J.) for both the Northwestern and Purdue games and Zach Zwinak for the Nebraska game..
