Football Run-On Tryout Meeting To Be Held Feb. 15

Those interested in joining Penn State’s football team can begin their journey on Monday, Feb. 15. The team will hold an informational meeting at 6 p.m. in the Lasch Squad Room for full-time students at University Park.

A release from Penn State says that the meeting will be run by members of the Athletic Training, Compliance, and Football staffs. No RSVP is necessary.

Penn State has an illustrious history of walk-on (or run-on) players becoming significant contributors to the team, but arguably none more notable than 2015 senior Carl Nassib. The defensive end proved Bill O’Brien wrong by earning a scholarship before the 2013 season, then in his senior year he won the Lombardi Award, Hendricks Award, Lott Impact Trophy, was Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year…you get the idea.

On a campus of 46,000, there’s a good chance plenty of quality contributors are out there, if not another Nassib. If you think you’re one of them, James Franklin’s crew wants to see you this Monday at 6.
