Penn State-Wisconsin Game Notes

Nittany Lions Host Senior Day on Saturday Versus Badgers

  • Defensive line coach Sean Spencer is known for using a deep rotation up front and Schwan gave him a talented and fierce pass rushing option in 2014.
  • Schwan will be among the major players to replace a pair of graduated defensive ends, Brad Bars and C.J. Olaniyan, and help fill the void left by the departure of Deion Barnes to the NFL.
  • His work in the strength and conditioning program, along with his unrelenting work ethic and athleticism on the field give him the ability to play the run, rush the passer or drop into coverage and defend the pass.
  • He is among a group of 15 Nittany Lions on schedule to graduate in December, earning his degree in economics in just 3.5 years.
  • Schwan is among 13 returning Nittany Lions from Central Pennsylvania.
