Nittany Lion season-opener set for Aug. 31 at MetLife Stadium
Nittany Lions Host Senior Day on Saturday Versus Badgers
In his first competition in Beaver Stadium, Evan Schwan recorded two sacks in the 2013 Blue-White game to help the defense post the win. A redshirt freshman, Schwan is looking forward to training camp and the chance to earn opportunities for similar results against opposing quarterbacks this fall. With the graduation of Pete Massaro and Sean Stanley, spots in the defensive end rotation will be up for grabs during preseason. The former Central Dauphin High School standout has excellent physical attributes and the drive and desire that are essential to succeed on the defensive line. Schwan has made good progress during his first year as a Nittany Lion, working hard in the weight room and on the practice field.
2012 (Freshman Season)
High School Schwan garnered all-state honors for Coach Glen McNamee at Central Dauphin High School. As a senior in 2011, he was instrumental in leading the Rams to their first PIAA Class AAAA state championship. A team captain, Schwan recorded 72 tackles and 16.5 sacks as a senior and earned first-team All-Mid-Penn Conference accolades. Schwan was a member of the squad's "leadership team." He was invited to play in the 2012 Big 33 Classic. Schwan missed the majority of his junior season with injuries.
