Penn State Kicker Vlad Hilling To Join Team’s Performance Enhancement Staff

Former Penn State football kicker Vlad Hilling is set to join the Nittany Lions’ performance enhancement staff as an intern this spring, he announced late last week.

Hilling will work with the team’s new head strength and conditioning coach, Chuck Losey, who was promoted to the position earlier in January. 

“These past four years have been some of the most memorable years of my life,” Hilling wrote online. “I have created friendships and connections that will last a lifetime. I was fortunate enough to learn from not only some of the best coaches in America but also great husbands and fathers.”

Hilling is set to graduate in May with a bachelor’s degree in Russian. He committed to Penn State in 2018 as an unranked recruit from Hollidaysburg Area Senior High School. Although he did not see any game action while at Penn State, he earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in each of the last three seasons.
