Penn State Striker Connor Maloney Featured in “MLS on Campus”

Connor Maloney has been on fire this year, tallying seven goals and two assists to begin the season. Now, the national soccer media has taken notice.

On Monday, Maloney was featured in’s “MLS on Campus” series, which discusses highlight performances from collegiate players.

The sophomore striker from Harrisburg has turned heads with his play in front of goal, living up to the potential that made him a part of the Philadelphia Union’s Academy system in high school and earned him a spot on the All-Big Ten Freshman team last season. With a brace against UPenn and a winner over Michigan, Maloney has powered the fourth-ranked Nittany Lions to an 8-0-1 start as they look to win another Big Ten title and contend for a national championship.

Look for Maloney to continue his march towards the Hermann Trophy (soccer’s version of the Heisman trophy) tomorrow when Penn State takes on Bucknell in Lewisburg at 7 p.m. You can stream that game over at, where it is being featured as the Men’s Soccer Game of the Week.
