Jonathan Sutherland To Wear No. 0 For Penn State Football

And the first person to ever don No. 0 in Penn State football history is… Jonathan Sutherland!

The team announced his selection through social media Saturday night.

“The individual wearing zero represents all of us and drives our culture. He is a tough, dependable, disciplined, physical leader who inspires teammates with his accountability and production,” the team said.

It comes as no surprise that the safety/special teams guru was given this honor. Many of Sutherland’s teammates named him a top choice to receive the number when the Nittany Lions announced a special teamer would wear it.

Penn State originally said that No. 0 would be a “game-changer” above all else. Sutherland, who blocked two punts in one game against Idaho his sophomore season, certainly fits the bill.

The Canada native was also recently named as a captain for the 2020 season). He’ll serve alongside fellow special-teamer Jordan Stout as a leader of the team this year.

Sutherland appeared in all 13 games both his freshman and sophomore years. He registered 38 total tackles, two tackles-for-losses, and a forced fumble during an impressive freshman campaign. He’ll likely vie for more playing time in the secondary behind Lamont Wade and Jaquan Brisker this year.
