PILEWICZ ON PENN STATE
“I chose Penn State because it offered the best combination of outstanding academics and hockey. My parents and siblings are all Penn Staters and I have been a lifelong fan. It's been a dream of mine to play hockey at Penn State. I know that my Penn State relationships will be meaningful long after I'm done playing hockey.”
GADOWSKY ON PILEWICZ
“Adam is a good skating defenseman who sees the ice well and is strong defensively; he will bring a lot of leadership to the program as he was an alternate captain in Johnstown.”
