Cal Poly football senior defensive tackle Sullivan Grosz was named to the All-America FCS first team by The Sports Network and the Associated Press on Wednesday. 

Beyond Sports Network had previously named Grosz to its first team, and Grosz was also a second-team pick by College Sports Madness.

Grosz was one of three Big Sky players named to The Sports Network’s first team along with Eastern Washington receiver Cooper Kupp and Montana State defensive end Brad Daly. No other Cal Poly player was named to the second or third teams.

Grosz started his final 35 games and did not miss a game in his career after redshirting in 2009. Earlier this season, he was named the Big Sky Co-Defensive Player of the Year by the coaches and was named team MVP.

Grosz led Cal Poly with 8.5 sacks and also had 70 tackles. He blocked a field goal against Yale and had an interception in his final game as a Mustang against Northern Colorado.

He finished his career with 188 tackles, 40.5 tackles for a loss and 22 sacks, which is the fifth-highest total in program history. 

Grosz is scheduled to graduate winter term with a degree in business administration with a concentration in management and in industrial technology.
