SYRACUSE Syracuse University senior quarterback Ryan Nassib was named to Pro Football Weeklys 2012 All-America Team.
The team annually recognizes college footballs most talented players, and is determined based on evaluation and feedback from NFL evaluators.

He set SU single-season records for attempts (448), completions (283), passing yards (3,619), touchdowns (24) and total offense (3,748).
