Podward State: Season 6, Episode 1 Ft. Tommy Stevens

On the season six premiere of Podward State, hosts Samuel Brungo and Grace Cunningham are joined by Jordan Mansberger, Shannon Smith, and Hailey Stutzman to cover Penn State and State College headlines since early December.

Next, our hosts, along with Will Pegler, interview former Penn State quarterback and “Lion” Tommy Stevens. Throughout the interview, he talks about his recruiting journey, his time at Penn State, and his decision to enter the transfer portal for his final year.

After transferring to Mississippi State to reunite with Joe Moorhead, Stevens was drafted in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints. He tells stories about the locker room and discusses what it was like to play for a handful of different teams.

Finally, to wrap up the show, Pegler is joined by Connor Krause and his brother, Charlie, to recap all things sports, including Penn State football, basketball, and hockey.
