Penn Staters Go Nuts After Trace McSorley Gets Drafted By Baltimore Ravens

Say it with me, Penn State: Trace McSorley is an NFL quarterback.

The Baltimore Ravens selected McSorley in the sixth round (No. 197 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. Baltimore’s decision to snag McSorley with its final pick of the draft was the culmination of the quarterback’s three-year term at the helm of Penn State’s offense, and it certainly quieted any doubters who thought he’d go undrafted.

Plenty of McSorley’s former teammates, coaches, and Penn State fans used Twitter to express their excitement and congratulate McSorley.

Even McSorley’s opposition offered their congratulations on Twitter, including former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins and Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis, who served as Penn State’s wide receivers coach from 2014-2017.

Something tells me there will be a significant increase in Baltimore Ravens gear in and around State College in the next year. That said, Pittsburgh Steelers fans may not approve.

Ravens fans will hope to see plenty of home run celebrations from McSorley in the future.
