DOTD: Relive The Summer Of Anthony Zettel

If you feel like you’ve seen a lot of Anthony Zettel this summer, that’s because you have and it’s been great. When the Penn State defensive tackle isn’t bringing quarterbacks down or taking interceptions to the house, the 6-foot-4, 284-pound Nittany Lion likes spending his summer tackling trees, practicing Taekwondo, and imitating dying pigs and dinosaurs.

Zettel started out the summer by showing us his brute strength with some lumber, so much so that he made an ESPN host swear on live television.

Next Zettel showed us that the big man can get up when he kicked a bottle that was held about six feet in the air. He did it with such force that the flying bottle almost decapitated poor Saquon Barkley.

Finally, Zettel shows us what noise a pig makes in a slaughterhouse. He also shows off his impression of a dinosaur, and it’s magnificent.

Zettel has shown us his many talents this summer, and with a couple of weeks left until the season, we still have time for more Zettel spottings. With all of the attention that Zettel has gotten, along with the entertainment that he has provided, it’s easy to say that this summer has been the Summer of Anthony Zettel.
