Most Penn State football fans have the upcoming 2013 season on their minds, but it is never too early to plan ahead and start thinking about the annual Blue-White game.
Penn State looks to already have its quarterback of the future in 5-star recruit Christian Hackenberg, but the Nittany Lions might be making room for one more highly rated signal-caller. According to a PennLive story citing 247 Sports, Michael O’Connor, a pro-style quarterback currently playing at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida is expected to make his college decision this Saturday, and the destination appears to be Happy Valley.
Both Penn State men’s and women’s lacrosse are set to join a newly formed Big Ten conference beginning in spring 2015. Perennial powerhouse Johns Hopkins joining the conference on the men’s side should make for exciting times in Happy Valley.
Penn State’s 2015 Big Ten schedule will include a conference opener at home and a game at an NFL stadium. Released this morning, the 2015 conference slate is similar to the 2014 schedule with the locations flip-flopped. Like the season prior, the Nittany Lions and Rutgers will get things started two weeks early on September 19, this time at Beaver Stadium.
Julieanne Siller, a 17-year old high school student scheduled to attend Penn State Altoona in the fall was stabbed and murdered by her boyfriend, 16-year old Tristan Stahley, over the weekend according to a CBS Philly Report. The incident allegedly occurred in Palmer Park Saturday night following an argument at Stahley’s house on Rittenhouse Lane in Skippack Township, located in Montgomery County, Pa outside of Philadelphia. Per the CBS Report, authorities say the couple continued fighting in the park. Stahley stabbed Siller in the throat and kept stabbing her before dragging her body into a wooden area.
Christian Hackenberg does not arrive on campus for a few more weeks, but he already has his jersey number picked out. According to a report yesterday, the highly touted quarterback recruit will be wearing No. 14 at Penn State.
