Penn State athletics: Nittany Lion football player Urschel, tennis standout Januskova win Big Ten medals of honor

Penn State tennis player Petra Januskova and football offensive lineman John Urschel have been selected as the university’s recipients of the Big Ten Medal of Honor for this past school year.

The conference’s most prestigious award, the Big Ten Medal of Honor was first awarded in 1915 to one student-athlete from the graduating class of each university who had “attained the greatest proficiency in athletics and scholastic work.”
