ON CHOOSING PENN STATE
"I chose Penn State because of the coaches and education. The coaches at Penn State were the one I meshed with the best and have a different style of coaching that is exciting and different. When it comes to education, a degree from Penn State is one that an employer would be very impressed with, and in the end, you go to school for a degree."
