VETTER ON PENN STATE
"As soon as I set foot on campus I knew I would be a Nittany Lion. Penn State's tremendous academic reputation and legendary support of their student athletes made it impossible to say no. I believe the coaching staff has assembled a team of athletes with great character and outstanding work ethic on and off the ice."
