A pair of All-American successes!

Two additional successes arrived in the mailbox this afternoon, and both come from players ranked among the best in the country. Penn State LB Paul Posluszny was chosen First Team Preseason All-America by both Phil Steele and Athlon magazines, among others. He returned his request in 31 days. Arizona State TE Zach Miller was a Second Team Preseason All-America selection by both of those magazines as well, and he returned his request in 28 days.

The Posluszny request was sent via his home address, meaning I'm now 2 for 7 in requests sent in that manner. That makes the to-home method a few percentage points more successful so far this year compared to the to-school method (29% to 25%). Miller's request was sent via his school's athletic department.

It's also worth noting that with these two successes, I moved above the 25% success rate overall and below the $4 per success cost for the year.
