Clark and Lee Named Co-Captains

Things are starting to fall into place for the Nittany Lions 2009-2010 football season – at the end of Spring practices, players elected Linebacker Sean Lee and Quarterback Daryll Clark co-captains.

“I’m honored to be elected a captain,” commented Clark, who was selected first team All-Big Ten in 2008. “I feel like everyone looks to me, but I wanted my teammates to vote for me because they see that I’m working hard and trying to get everyone on the same page of what we have to do to in our plan to win football games.”

I couldn’t think of a better pairing for co-captaincy. Clark has emerged asĀ  a leader of the offense after beating out Pat Devlin for the job of starting quarterback last season. With veteran wideouts Derrick Williams, Deon Butler, and Jordan Norwood graduated, Clark becomes the definitive voice of the squad.

Lee not only gained respect from his teammates for his plays on the field prior to the ACL injury he suffered last season, but staying with the team during the recovery process, offering advice from the sidelines as a unofficial coaching assistant.

Both players not only have the leadership qualities necessary, but represent the two components of modern Penn State football – Lee upholds the Linebacker U tradition, while Clark is the face of Jay Paterno’s Spread HD offense.

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.”
