Lift for Life, the marquee event conducted by the Penn State Uplifting Athletes chapter is set to kick off on July 11 from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. at the Penn State Lacrosse Field.
The 6-foot-6 center, currently playing in the USHL, is the fifth recent Nittany Lion who has been drafted to the NHL.
After the former Penn State star didn’t hear his name called in either of the two rounds of the NBA Draft on Thursday night, D.J. Newbill was left waiting for an NBA team to come calling for his services. Newbill worked out with a number of teams before the draft, including the Denver Nuggets, Charlotte Hornets, Philadelphia 76ers, and many others. One team in particular, the Los Angeles Clippers, was impressed enough to sign Newbill to their Summer League roster, giving the Nittany Lion great his first opportunity in the NBA.
