BALTIMORE, MD — He’s been one of the top offensive linemen in the NFL over much of the last half decade.
Former Anamosa superstar and current Baltimore Raven Marshal Yanda has accomplished just about everything there is to accomplish during his decorated eight-year career.
Yanda added another accolade to his list last week, however, being named a first-team NFL All-Pro pick by a panel of 50 Associated Press voters.
Amazingly, Yanda had never made the All-Pro first-team, twice being named a second-team selection in 2011 and 2012.
Yanda has been named to four pro bowls, including one this season, but has vaulted himself to the top spot in his profession earning the highest vote total among all offensive linemen in the entire National Football League.
Yanda earned 38 votes from the AP panel. The All-Pro honor is the most prestigious award handed to an NFL player as only one player is selected for each position on the field.
Yanda was one of two Ravens to earn first-team All-Pro honors with teammate Elvis Dumervil, who was named as an outside linebacker.
Yanda helped Baltimore advance to the AFC divisional playoff round after a big 30-17 wild card win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Jan. 3.
The Ravens will travel to top-seed New England Saturday, Jan. 10, at 3:35 p.m. on NBC with the winner earning a berth to the AFC Championship Sunday, Jan. 18.
