2011 ALL-Big Ten Honorable Mention (Coaches).
Charged with DUI in January 2011, failure to obey traffic device and driving without a license after a traffic stop. Johnnie Troutman started the final 11 games of the 2010 season at left guard and has 19 career starts. He saw action on 930 snaps last year, the team's secondhighest total to Stefen Wisniewski, topped by 93 in the win over Northwestern and 90 against Florida in the Outback Bowl. Troutman was instrumental in Penn State allowing only 12 sacks all season, tied for No. 2 in the Big Ten and No. 13 in the nation for fewest sacks allowed. He played a critical role in helping the Nittany Lions gain 350 or more yards nine times last season,
topped by 528 yards in the 35-21 comeback win over Northwestern. The Lions ran for a season-high 260 yards against the Wildcats, with two 100-yard rushers,
and threw for 268 yards. Troutman helped Penn State gain 496 yards against Indiana and 435 yards against Michigan, scoring 41 points in both victories.
Troutman moved into the first unit at left guard and started eight consecutive games before suffering a strained calf against Ohio State. He missed the Indiana game, but returned to help the Lions gain 512 yards en route to a 42-14 win at Michigan State. Troutman played on 619 snaps, led by 86 in the win over Minnesota and 75 in the 35-10 victory at Michigan. He was an instrumental member of an offense ranked No. 2 in the Big Ten at 406.9 ypg. Penn State was third in the Big Ten in fewest sacks allowed. Troutman and his linemates helped quarterback Daryll Clark rank No. 2 in the Big Ten in passing efficiency and deliver a school season-record 24 touchdown passes. The unit also was instrumental in Evan Royster becoming the seventh Nittany Lion all-time to gain 1,000 yards in multiple seasons. In the win at Illinois, Penn State rolled up 338 rushing yards, getting 100-yard games from Stephfon Green (120) and Royster (105) and 83 yards from Clark. In the 52-3 pounding of Eastern Illinois, Penn State displayed dominating balance, racking up 268 yards passing and 285 yards rushing en route to a season-best yardage total of 553. The Minnesota victory capped a three-week stretch in which Troutman and the offensive line did not allow a sack. In the 34-13 win at Northwestern, its fifth straight, the Penn State offense gained 301 yards in the second half and 437 for the game, averaging 7.5 yards per play.
Troutman saw action in six games as a reserve to All-America guard Rich Ohrnberger and emerged as a contributor on one of the nation's top offensive lines. Troutman was on the field for 80 snaps, led by 19 against Coastal Carolina and 18 at Syracuse.
Troutman was a standout for Coach John Rosnick at Pemberton HS. He earned first-team all-state and All-South Jersey honors.
