Jobe, an offensive lineman, and Pugnetti, a punter, were two of just eight Big East players to make the list. Syracuse, Rutgers and UConn also placed two players apiece on the list.

Jobe started 31 games and played in 51 for West Virginia over his four-year career while maintaining his excellent academic record in industrial engineering.

Each member must have maintained a 3.2 GPA or better, been a starter or a significant substitute his last year of eligibility, and have met all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements and graduation.
