Nittany Lions Host Senior Day on Saturday Versus Badgers
Jonathan Warner is looking forward to training camp and an opportunity to make a further impression on the wide receiver rotation. He was an effective and productive member of the Dirty Show (scout team) last fall during his redshirt season, giving the defensive backs a great look. A hard-working athlete with good size and hands, Warner has made significant progress during his first season as a Nittany Lion. He should have an opportunity to earn time in the Nittany Lions' dynamic passing game this year. Warner garnered all-state honors at Camas High School, located across the Columbia River from Portland, Ore. His father, Curt, was a two-time All-America running back for the Nittany Lions and is a member of the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame.
