Frank Figueroa continues to work hard and improve as he strives to crack the offensive line rotation. The 2011 season saw Figueroa transition from guard to center, where senior Matt Stankiewitch returns after starting every game last year. Figueroa is a determined athlete with a great attitude who likely will battle Ty Howle and possibly Angelo Mangiro for the top reserve spot at center. Figueroa is on schedule to graduate in December, 3 1/2 years after enrolling at Penn State. The former all-state guard from Thomas Edison High School is among three returning Nittany Lions from Texas.
2011 Junior Season
Figueroa's hard work and improvement did not result in any playing time on the offensive line, which featured four senior starters.
2010 Sophomore Season
Figueroa continued to make progress, but did not see any game action.
2009 Freshman Season
A three-year captain, Figueroa played offensive guard at Thomas Edison HS. Under coach Vaughn Lewis, he twice gained first-team all-district laurels. The second-team all-region and honorable-mention all-state and all-met honoree helped Edison to three National District Division 5 Championships and a state runner-up finish.
Full name is Frank Figueroa Jr. He is the son of Frank and Carmen Figueroa. He has one sister, Stephanie. Figueroa is enrolled in the crime, law and justice major and would like to become an FBI agent. Born on December 5, 1990 in Indianapolis, Ind.
