Yeisley Joins The Ranks of Blogger-Athletes
We’re always glad to see someone embrace the emerging medium that society has come to known as the blog, and that goes double for the athletically talented. Redshirt Senior Jason Yeisley, a forward for the men’s soccer team recently started to chronicle the process of returning from two blown-out knees to play for the Nittany Lions.
Read along as the All-America candidate takes you on a journey from the Nittany Lions’ spring preparations to their May tour of Brazil and from summer training through the 2009 season. The blog will provide fans with insider glimpse into the trials, triumphs, and travails of a collegiate soccer season through the eyes and words of one of the nation’s top players.
Yeisley’s wrote the inaugural post for his blog, The Season, just two weeks ago. It appears to have promise, as his take on the goings on of the soccer team and life as a college athlete are genuinely his own – an exciting prospect for soccer fans. Sites like Yardbarker have allowed professional athletes to achieve a new level of accessibility through personal blogging, so college athletes following suit only makes sense. Every Penn State sports team should have one designated blogger to share the team perspective online. Perhaps The Season might inspire other Student-Athletes to join the ranks.
