ORLANDO, Fla. -- Penn State offensive lineman John Urschel won the Sullivan Award on Friday night as the country's top amateur athlete.

The football star edged Florida track and field athlete Cory Ann McGee and Nebraska volleyball player Kelsey Robinson for the award presented by the Amateur Athletic Union.

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound guard was an all-Big Ten selection and third-team Associated Press All-American. He has a master's degree in math and won the William V. Campbell Trophy as college football's top scholar-athlete.

Swimmer Missy Franklin won the award last year.
