The Penn State fullback and Navy diver has been selected as an 1190 Officer, which was his first choice coming out of school. He will begin Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) training this summer in Florida. It will be about a year and a half of training. Congratulations to PJ on this accomplishment.
This PDF explains it much better than I can.

Congratulations to PJ, great to hear.
Great achievement! Is that what Cuba Gooding's character did in Men of Honor?

Congrats to PJ. This young man's story is one of my favorite 'Under the Helmet' stories of any PSU player inyears. As a former Navy vet, I wish him nothing but the best and have the utmost respect for what he is all about, and what he will accomplish moving forward!

Congrats PJ, and thanks for your service. The main Navy EOD training facility (or one of the primary facilities anyway) is at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle, north of Fort Walton Beach, about an hour southeast of where Neiko Robinson lives. Got to tour Eglin via Huey with an elected official ten years or so ago, and had lunch with the EOD guys in their mess. Very, very cool facility. Remote though - it's miles from the main base facilities, up in the Yellow River swamps. Will be quite a cultural, climate, and geographic shock for PJ :-)

PJ's been USN enlisted. He's learned all about culture issues.
Next time inside the 5......GIVE HIM THE BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
proud of this young man, we represents himself, his University, the football team and his country well and of course his family who influenced him more than any of the others.
This is so awesome! Congrats to PJ. Thank you to him and all the others for serving for our freedom!

Wasn't it posted recently that BOB said there was some question about his eligibility?
That was the marine (name slipping my mind).
Congrats and thank you for your service!
Awesome and congrats to him! Would love to get him a TD at some point too.
