Hockey’s David Glen Named Finalist For National Senior CLASS Award

No. 15 men’s hockey captain David Glen was named a finalist for Premier Sports Management’s CLASS award on Wednesday.

The award is an acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School. Glen joins nine other NCAA Division I finalists selected for contributions in the community and the classroom and for having a strong character and competitive nature on and off the ice. The voting process involves coaches and national media, but fan voting is worth 33% of the total decision.

In 2014, Glen missed three games to donate bone marrow to an anonymous recipient. The captain was honored the Big Ten 2013-14 Sportsmanship Award. He shows ample appreciation for the Roar Zone, hockey’s student section, especially via twitter:

The Nittany Lions pumped up the THON crowd last year fresh off an exhausting overtime win against Minnesota. Assistant Coach Matt Lindsay told us the team is working on something for THON this weekend despite simultaneously hosting a series against Ohio State.

Fans can vote once a day until March 28. Vote here and let the country know Hockey Valley is here to stay.
