Former Wrestler Rohan Murphy to Speak at Penn State
As a part of the Penn State Disability Advisory Group’s Disability Awareness Month, former Penn State wrestler Rohan Murphy will speak at the HUB on October 30.
After being born with the absence of his right hip joint, and only part of his left, Murphy had both of his legs amputated when he was four years old. Murphy began wrestling during his freshman year of high school, where he was a three-time All-League wrestler at East Islip High School in Islip, New York.
Murphy walked on at Penn State under former head coach Troy Sunderland, and during his time in Happy Valley, took an interest in powerlifting. Currently, Murphy is training to compete in the 2016 Paralympics as a powerlifter.
Murphy has traveled the world competing and spreading his story as a motivational speaker. If you’re interested in listening to Murphy speak, he will tell his life story in his speech “Rohan Murphy: No Legs, No Problem!” The speech will be in the HUB auditorium at 7:30 on Tuesday.
