ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan football senior duo of defensive end Brandon Graham (Detroit, Mich./Crockett Technical HS) and punter Zoltan Mesko (Twinsburg, Ohio/Twinsburg HS) continue to receive postseason accolades with their selection as second team All-Americans by the Associated Press. Graham also received a second-team nod from Sporting News.
Last week, both players were named second team All-Americans by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. Mesko was also a finalist for the Ray Guy Award as the nation's top collegiate punter and Graham was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year Award.
Both individuals will remain in Ann Arbor to train with Michigan strength and conditioning coach Mike Barwis for the NFL Combine and draft.
Graham and Mesko will participate in the Under Armour Senior Bowl on Jan. 30, 2010. The game will be televised by the NFL Network starting at 4 p.m. EST from Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
The duo is among nine Big Ten Conference players named to the first, second or third team All-America squads by the AP.
