Former Punahou and University of Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o was not selected by a team in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday.

The linebacker was a runner-up in the race for the Heisman Trophy and led the Fighting Irish to the BCS National Championship game against Alabama in January.

Te'o had an outstanding postseason run of awards -- six to be exact -- which is the record for postseason awards.

The Punahou graduate won the Maxwell Award, the Walter Camp national player of the year award, Bednarik Award, Butkus Award, Nagurski Trophy and Lombardi Award.
