The Garrity family has been a part of Penn State football since the 1950s, when Gregg's grandfather, Jim, laced up his cleats for the Nittany Lions. Gregg's father, Gregg Sr., was a wide receiver for the Blue and White, lettering from 1980-82. He is famous for making "The Catch" in the end zone that helped the Nittany Lions clinch their first national title in the 1983 Sugar Bowl with a win over No. 1 Georgia. Regarded as one of the iconic plays in Penn State football history, the feat landed the elder Garrity on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The third-generation Garrity brings a strong work-ethic to the practice field and weight room. A crisp route-runner, the North Allegheny High School all-state selection played an instrumental role on the scout team during his first campaign on campus and played in three games. With continued progress in the weight room and on the field, the talented and quick Garrity enters the season looking to add depth to the receiving corps and crack the rotation. He brought a 3.54 grade-point average into the summer and is a potential Academic All-Big Ten candidate. Garrity is among 11 returning Nittany Lions from Western Pennsylvania.
