Penn State Football Is Looking For The Next Carl Nassib

The Nittany Lions are holding an informational meeting for those interested in joining the football team today (Monday, August 29th). The meeting is at the Lasch Football Building and will be held in the squad room at 6 p.m.

While most people know by this point in life if division I football is in the cards, never give up hope — you could be the next Carl Nassib. He started out as a walk on, and look at him now — playing in the NFL, a few million dollars richer today because he had the moxie to take the same chance in front of you now.

To try out for the team, students must be enrolled full-time and registered at the University Park campus. The recruiting work of James Franklin and his staff has brought in some great talent this year, but maybe a walk-on will bring the X-factor for the upcoming season.

If you think you have the guts to make the squad, you don’t need to RSVP. Just show up to the Lasch building tonight with your game face on.
