With two national titles and four Big Ten Championships to its name, the Penn State Nittany Lions football program is coming off a year where it captured its first conference title under James Franklin. Known for tradition, Beaver Stadium, and Joe Paterno, the program is a point of pride in the community after the team persevered following harsh NCAA sanctions that eliminated wins and placed scholarship reductions on the program. The team will try to make even more strides with Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley leading the charge for the 2017 season.
With the first pick, and the last pick, coming and going, another NFL Draft comes to a close. There will be 12 former Nittany Lions that will be part of football teams over the summer, however, as they joined pro teams this weekend. Four were drafted, and the other eight were signed as free agents after the draft was completed.
