Former Penn State Football Running Back John Lovett Signs With San Antonio Brahmas

Former Penn State football running back John Lovett has signed with the San Antonio Brahmas of the new United Football League, the league announced Friday.

Lovett played for Penn State in 2021, appearing in nine games. He finished his brief stint with the Nittany Lions with 177 rushing yards on 52 attempts, 36 receiving yards on nine catches, and 63 kick return yards on four attempts.
