Why Penn State?
"I chose Penn State because Penn State actively, adamantly, and passionately chose me. The coaches have supported me since day one and have truly showed great interest in me as not only an athlete, but as a student, and as a person. I am truly blessed to attend Penn State! I plan to represent the Nittany Lions with a spirit of humility and integrity both academically and athletically!"
