Yeisley Joins The Ranks of Blogger-Athletes

theseasonWe’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.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”



Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
