Manti Te'o wins Nagurski Trophy
By Matt Fortuna
Monday was Manti Te'o Day. And given the linebacker's itinerary for the next six days, there's a chance this could turn into Manti Te'o week.
The Notre Dame captain accepted the Bronko Nagurski Award on Monday night in Charlotte, N.C., where his coach, Brian Kelly, served as the keynote speaker at the banquet to honor the nation's top defensive player.
Te'o was named a Heisman Trophy finalist a few hours before the banquet, and earlier in the day he received the Butkus Award as the nation's best linebacker.
