Greene, who earned Freshman All-America honors from the Football Writers Association of America Scripps, The Sporting News, Rivals.com, and CollegeFootballNews.com, helped lead Rutgers to a 7-4 regular season record and a third place finish in the BIG EAST. The Scarlet Knights also earned a berth to the Insight Bowl.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is sponsored by the Charlotte Touchdown Club. The recipient will be selected from the FWAA’s 11-man defensive team that is chosen at the conclusion of the 2006 season.
