Anthony Zettel To Raise Money For Uplifting Athletes At NFL Combine

Though he isn’t with the Penn State program anymore, we might be in for another Summer of Zettel. The standout defensive tackle was as much of a force on the field as he was off it, as he was an active contributor to the team’s Lift for Life program which supports Uplifting Athletes, which in turn raises money to combat rare diseases.

Zettel’s latest charity work will take place at the NFL Combine at the bench press. Like Jesse James a year ago, Zettel encourages fans to pledge a donation for each rep he does. Defensive linemen will bench press this Saturday.

James ended up bench pressing 26 times with $210 pledged per rep, for a total of $5,460. His performance wound up not only benefiting Uplifting Athletes but also earned him a draft selection by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
