The Penn State community was quick to respond with positive and hopeful messages for the Penn State football alum. Dieffenbach deservingly received at outpouring of support from some former players, including Jason Cabinda, Nyeem Wartman-White, and Grant Haley. Even the Nittany Lion himself showed his love.
All of Nittany Nation has your back. ?

In many ways, Dieffenbach represents what Penn State fans appreciate most, as he played under a flurry of head coaches and stuck around during the transfer frenzy following the NCAA sanctions handed down following the Sandusky scandal. Dieffenbach started in 26 games over the course of his career and served as a team captain in his final year at Penn State.
We wish Dieffenbach good health and yet another victory in his personal fight. The Penn State community stands behind you.
