Senior Tim Dunn

UNIVERSITY Park, Pa. - Entering his senior season, Penn State pitcher Tim Dunn wasn't exactly sure what role he would have under new head coach Rob Cooper and new pitching coach Brian Anderson.

Used almost exclusively as a reliever his first three years under the previous coaching staff, the left-hander had always had aspirations earn a role as a starter but felt as though the opportunity might never come.

"I was ready for whatever role they saw me in but I wasn't quite sure what (my role) would be," Dunn said. "If anything, I was thinking long-relief."

For the first month of the season, that's mostly the role that Dunn occupied, coming out of the bullpen five times in Penn State's first 19 games. At that point, it seemed like the senior was destined to be a career bullpen guy. That isn't the case now, however.
