Kansas State's Arthur Brown named FWAA All-American

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Wildcats linebacker was one of three players from the Big 12 named to the All-American team

Kansas St. Wildcats linebacker Arthur Brown was named an All-American by the Football Writers Association of America, the group announced Friday. Brown, who was also named a second-team All-American by the Associated Press this week, continues to rack up the postseason honors.

Brown, a senior and a native of Wichita, piled up 91 tackles this year, two interceptions — including one for a touchdown against Texas Tech — four passes defended and a sack. He was the unquestioned leader on a defense that was 24th in the country in points allowed in one of the most potent offensive conferences around.

Brown was also named the 2012 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, and will lead the Wildcats against the Oregon Ducks in the Fiesta Bowl in January. Brown has come a long way since his freshman year playing under Randy Shannon at the University of Miami. He was one of the original players named in the Yahoo! Sports investigation of booster Nevin Shapiro, and his brother, Bryce, a former K-State player himself, is currently playing for the Philadelphia Eagles.
