The 24 honorees were chosen from a group of more than 300 student-athletes honored throughout the academic year who had displayed positive sportsmanship.

All of the Sportsmanship Award winners have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. In addition, these honorees must be in good academic standing and must have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.

Glen learned he was a bone marrow match through Be The Match, a National Bone Marrow Donation Program.
The rising junior participated in the Be The Match-facilitated Match4Kim Drive, which was held in support of Penn State men's lacrosse player's Drew Roper's mother on campus November 2012.
