Penn State Football To Host Run-On Tryouts Starting February 15

Penn State Football has a long history of walk-on run-on success. From Carl Nassib to Deon Butler to Matt McGloin and, now, potentially you.

Once again, the Nittany Lions are hosting run-on tryouts this spring. If you’ve ever dreamed of running out of the Beaver Stadium tunnel, this could be the chance you’ve been waiting for.

The team will hold an informational meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 15, inside the Lasch Building. Before attending, though, prospective players must fill out the team’s Google Form, which asks for players’ positions, highlight clips, contact information, and current GPAs.

All applicants must be enrolled full-time and registered at Penn State’s University Park campus to be considered for a walk-on spot.

If you make the team, perhaps you could work your way to a full scholarship just like long snapper Chris Stoll back in 2020. A handful of former run-ons have even gone on to play professionally. The dream has to start somewhere, and for some, it may begin on February 15.
