Former Penn State Quarterback Matt McGloin Declares Victory In Lackawanna County Commissioner Race

Matt McGloin, Penn State football walk-on turned starting quarterback from 2010 to 2012, declared victory in Pennsylvania’s Lackawanna County commissioner race Tuesday night.

The democratic candidate earned 31,348 votes, according to Lackawanna County’s unofficial results.

McGloin and a board consisting of two other commissioners will be responsible for Lackawanna County policy, human service and economic development programming, and finances.

“In the community, the Commissioners are actively involved with the public and private sector officials on development projects that will enhance our operating environment, improve our business climate, and create employment opportunities,” the Lackawanna County website described. “They also work closely with elected officials from the County’s municipalities on various events and activities.”

In Happy Valley, McGloin threw for 6,390 yards and 46 touchdowns, while rushing for seven of his own touchdowns and completing 57.4% of passes.

After departing Penn State, McGloin went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft but was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Oakland Raiders. He spent the following four seasons in Oakland and appeared in 13 games, registering 1,868 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
