Penn State Selects 24 Players For 2016 Leadership Council
With the Blue-White Game less than three weeks away, Penn State has named 24 players to the 2016 Leadership Council.
The council is a group of players who’ll meet with James Franklin twice a month to discuss a variety of different things about the team. It is also in charge of upholding the football team’s four core values: positive attitude, great work ethic, competitiveness, and a willingness to make sacrifices.
The Leadership Council is comprised of football players from all classes. The seniors are Brandon Bell, Derek Dowrey, Brian Gaia, Gregg Garrity, Malik Golden, Wendy Laurent, Paris Palmer, Evan Schwan, Jordan Smith, Von Walker, Nyeem Wartman-White, and Tyler Yazujian.
Juniors selected to the council are Jason Cabinda, Chris Godwin, Grant Haley, DaeSean Hamilton, Andrew Nelson, and Garrett Sickels. Saquon Barkley, Trace McSorley, John Reid, and Nick Scott round out the sophomores, and Ryan Bates and Tommy Stevens are the lone freshmen.
“I am very excited about our Leadership Council this year,” Franklin said in a statement. “They are a group of guys that are what we look for in Penn State football student-athletes and represent our four core values on a daily basis. The Leadership Council gives the team a strong voice with their teammates and our coaching staff.”
