Wide Receiver Dan Chisena Put On Full Scholarship
Penn State football head coach James Franklin announced that wide receiver Dan Chisena is on full scholarship at the 2019 Blue-White game.
Nothing can top the wholesomeness of a surprise scholarship announcement, but Franklin took it to a whole new level for Chisena. He made the announcement over Beaver Stadium’s PA system after the walk-on wide receiver hauled in a 59-yard touchdown pass.
Chisena ran on the Penn State track team from 2016-18, but he joined the football team last season and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors. During his track career, Chisena competed in the 4×100 and 4×400-meter relays. He helped the team set a school record in both events during the 2017 outdoor season.
Unsurprisingly, Chisena’s teammates mobbed him after Franklin made the announcement to those in attendance at Beaver Stadium. His touchdown gave the Blue team a 17-7 lead over the White squad late in the third quarter of the team’s annual spring football game.
