Montminy has earned a reputation as one of the toughest and hardest working Nittany Lions with a history of playing with physical abandon in both practice and games that has garnered him numerous stitches. He parlayed his work ethic and intelligence into quality first half minutes in his sophomore season. A standout three-sport athlete at nearby Penns Valley High School, Montminy is an Academic All-Big Ten honoree that earned Dean's List honors in his first year on campus and has been accepted into Penn State's Smeal College of Business and the Schreyer Honors College. He grew up just 20 minutes from the Bryce Jordan Center and is the first locally grown Centre County player on the Nittany Lions' roster since the 2005-06 season. The preferred walk-on was a dynamic scorer and a valedictorian, 4.0 student-athlete at Penns Valley High School.
"Kevin brings tremendous energy and toughness everyday to our team. He is an honors student with great leadership qualities that his teammates and our staff have tremendous respect for."
- Patrick Chambers
