|ESPN.com: Big Ten||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
Michigan senior punter Zoltan Mesko has been named to the 2009 Playboy Magazine preseason All-America team, the school announced Tuesday. Mesko earned first-team All-Big Ten honors last season after leading the league and finishing 19th nationally in punting average (42.95 yards per punt).
Mesko has started 38 games for Michigan and should become the school's all-time leader in both punts and punting yards this fall.
He joins Northwestern defensive end Corey Wootton, who was named to the Playboy All-America team last week.
The entire All-America team will be published in the September issue of the magazine. Four Big Ten players -- Ohio State's James Laurinaitis and Malcolm Jenkins, and Illinois' Vontae Davis and Ryan McDonald -- made last year's team.
