The awards continue to come in for Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner who was named the 2012 Walter Camp Connecticut Player of the Year. The award is given to the best college football player who either resides or plays in the state of Connecticut.

Werner was a worthy recipient, as he was a consensus All-America selection and was tied for second in the nation with 13 sacks. He also racked up 40 tackles with 18 of them coming for a loss. He helped the Florida State defense become one of the best in the nation, as evidenced by their 253.7 yards allowed per game, which ranks second in the country.

Werner played high school ball at The Salisbury School after moving to the United States from Berlin, Germany. His play as a defensive end and tight end made him a four-star recruit.

Werner and the Seminoles will take on the Northern Illinois Huskies in the 2013 Orange Bowl on Jan. 1.
