Battle Gets Props in NYT

Illinois Penn St BasketballMark Viera, New York Times college sports reporter, had a good article today about Talor Battle and Penn State this season. Specifically, the article focused on Battle’s tough high school years. Notable quotes are:

“He just has that innate ability to make other players better,” said Kurt Kanaskie, a Penn State assistant coach. “And I think that’s really the ultimate compliment of a basketball player.”

Rising from a childhood in which his family was briefly homeless and overcoming serious ankle injuries, Battle has helped Penn State match its highest single-season win total.

The future is bright for Battle, who is only a sophomore. I look forward to seeing what he can accomplish in the years ahead.
