2012 ALL--BIG TEN SPECIAL TEAMS

K BRETT MAHER NEBRASKA SENIOR

Faced with the daunting task of replacing All-America Alex Henery, the former walk-on earned first-team All--Big Ten honors. He made 19 of 23 field goals, including three of six from 50 yards and beyond.

SECOND TEAM DAN CONROY MICHIGAN STATE SENIOR

P BRETT MAHER NEBRASKA SENIOR

Maher was the first player since Purdue's Travis Dorsch in 2001 to be named All--Big Ten kicker and punter in the same season. His 44.5-yard average ranked 10th nationally. He had 20 punts of at least 50 yards and pinned opponents inside their 20-yard line 24 times.

SECOND TEAM ANTHONY FERA PENN STATE JUNIOR

KR RAHEEM MOSTERT PURDUE SOPHOMORE

A burner from New Smyrna Beach, Fla., Mostert made his mark as a true freshman. His 33.48-yard average led the nation and is second in Boilermakers history to Stan Brown's 33.6 in 1970. Mostert's 206 kick-return yards against Wisconsin set a school record.

SECOND TEAM AMEER ABDULLAH NEBRASKA SOPHOMORE
