Penn State wrestling star David Taylor has another accolade to add to his growing list — Thursday, he was named a First Team Capital One Academic All-American, wrestling’s second straight First Team nod.

Taylor finished his remarkable collegiate career with a perfect senior season. He was 34-0 with 16 pins and seven technical falls en route to notching the Hodge Trophy, the Most Outstanding Wrestler recognition at nationals this year and the National Championship.

He finished his career with a 134-3 overall record, four Big Ten Wrestler of the Year awards, two National Championships, and two Hodge Trophies.

Beside the Capital One All Academic All-American honor, he also received First Team All-Academic honors from the National Wrestling Coaches Association and earned Big Ten All-Academic honors.

Gabrielle Shishkoff from the women’s swimming team earned third team honors. Shishkoff earned honorable mention All-American honors at the NCAA Championships, in the 400IM and 800 freestyle relay, setting the school record in the 400IM with a time of 4:06.85.
