Several Nittany Lions are in their first year of learning a new position, moving to a new spot in order to maximize their talents and strengths and bolster depth. J.R. Refice is looking forward to his first full season at fullback, having made the move from defensive tackle. Senior Michael Zordich is the lone returnee with much experience at fullback, giving Refice an opportunity to battle for the top reserve role in the position critical to offensive success. The hard-working and determined Valley View High School product made good progress in the spring. He is on schedule to graduate in December. Refice is among 11 returning Nittany Lions from Eastern Pennsylvania.
2011 Junior Season
Refice saw action on the defensive line in the season-opener against Indiana State, helping hold the Sycamores to seven points.
2010 Sophomore Season
Refice made his Nittany Lion debut against Youngstown State.
2009 Freshman Season
Refice was a four-year starter and letterman at Valley View High School for Coach George Howanitz. He played on the offensive and defensive lines and was an All-Lackawanna District 2 Class AA honorable-mention honoree. Refice also was a first-team all-league track and field selection and helped Valley View to four consecutive league championships.
Full name is Joseph Ray Refice. He is the son of Joe and Jill Refice and has a sister, Jillian. His grandfather, Ray Alberigi, played football at Penn State from 1953-55. Refice is majoring in political science and is interested in becoming a lawyer. Born September 11, 1990.
