Kicker Troy Stivason Commits to Walk-On to Penn State

Troy Stivason, a kicker from Athens, Pennsylvania, has committed to walk-on to the Penn State football team.

Stivason received offers from Buffalo and Akron, but instead chose to walk on to the Nittany Lions 2014 squad. He attended Penn State’s home opener against Eastern Michigan along with nine other recruits.

A 5’11’, 168 pound senior at Athens High School, Stivason officially announced his decision through his Instagram with the caption:

“So blessed to officially announce that I’m committed to fulfill a childhood dream and kick at Penn State University. Thanks to everyone who believed and stood behind me on this journey. Again, I’m truly blessed to have the support system I do! #WEARE #PENNSTATE”

Stivason will join twelve other committed Penn State recruits that currently compose the class of 2014. Starting placekicker Sam Ficken will be a senior next year, while backup true freshman Chris Gulla will be a sophomore. Stivason will likely start his Nittany Lion career third on the depth chart.
