Saturday night's dual in Rec Hall to serve as Senior Night for Penn State

Junior Nittany Lion Jan Johnson stepped up in October of 2015 when Nittany Lion Nick Nevills went down with an injury. With no other heavyweight on the roster at the time, Johnson selflessly stepped right off the football field and on to the mat to start at 285. Last season, an injury playing for Penn State's Big Ten Champion football team kept Johnson from joining the squad when his gridiron campaign ended. Johnson looks to make the move this year after his Nittany Lion football team concludes action.
