Pair of Spartans named to the second team by Scout, while Brian Allen earned freshman honors
The pair of cornerbacks that started Michigan State’s season-finale against Penn State received honors from Scout this week.
Junior corner Trae Waynes and senior wide receiver/corner Tony Lippett were named to the Scout All-America second team Wednesday.
Waynes, a first-team All-Big Ten selection by both coaches and media, had three interceptions in the regular season.
Lippett was named the Richter-Howard receiver of the year as the best receiver in the Big Ten. He also was named first-team All-Big Ten by both coaches and media.
He wrapped up the regular season with a Big Ten-leading 11 receiving touchdowns, 1,124 yards receiving and 93.7 yards per game. He finished fourth in the league with 60 receptions.
Lippett made the second team at the athlete position.
Freshman offensive lineman Brian Allen was named to the Scout Freshman All-America first team Thursday. Allen was one of four true freshmen to play this season for Michigan State.
