Local State College High RB..ran for over 2000 yards last season!!
STATE COLLEGE Navy visits Penn State on Sept. 15.
...and if you're not down with that, then I got 2 words for ya.."suck it!!"
Good to add some depth but he will never see the field and 2000 yards is nice number but high school stats are meaningless.
“Never trust a government that doesn't trust its own citizens with guns.”
Not saying he will be a stud but we need depth at FB badly and a AAAA PA high school schedule means he played some tough opponents. At least he can run with the scout team so our starters do no have to!!
I'm with you paupack. The kid is a walk-on, let's set what he can do.
If the only record he didn't break was Larry Johnson's.. thats saying something.. We all know what Larry went on to do. Give the kid a shot..
Matt McGloin was a walk on. Just sayin.

Good kid just looking for a chance and u never know walk-on have played for PS before.
Exactly, Matt McGloin was a walk on..
He's also as dumb as a box of rocks.
I'm not saying to start the kid, my point is you never know what someone could turn into as a walk-on: See: Ethan Kilmer.

I hope he reads your post and stokes the fire just a little bit more. Take a look at his highlight film and realize he was playing AAAA competition. Then leave a little room for a pleasant surprise.
With fullback being deemphasized, I'm glad we could pickup a quality player at the position as a preferred walkon.
I watched his tape, it was okay. He is a walk on so there is no harm but high school stats are meaningless and have no impact how good a player is or will be. Just remember that Austin Scott owns the single season rushing record in the state and it did not translate to the college game. Silas Redd had less yards his senior against worse competition but look at him in college.
No doubt..I believe we only have Zordich and Zwinak right now..one injury away from seeing playing time!!
Yes, and he shouldn't see the field at PSU minus mop up time.
Try to fathom the hypocrisy of a Government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured .but not prove they're a citizen
He's a walkon...some have had great careers and ended up playing on Sundays. Some we never really heard from. Good for the kid as it's not an easy path to take.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
Wow. Congratulations to the young man. Nice job in his high school career and great to get a walk on at PSU. I wish him the best of luck and hope he finds himself in a role where he can be welcomed.
then what's Bolden?

Bolden plays like a robot. He's so scared to make a mistake it kills him. His confidence is shot. Everything about his game screams it, unfortunately.
Mac is just a moron with the ball in his hands. As of now though he's a better QB. Hope that changes.
I agree. The new regime will have good QBs after the next few [from the old regime] leave...starting with Bench [as one of the good ones].
Great backyard find!
Josh Hull was a walk-on -- I wasn't a huge fan but he got tons of PT and got picked up in the NFL. A 2000 yard running Fullback at the AAAA level = certainly not out of the realm of possibility that he could develop
Geez. Nice way to welcome a kid. I think we all know the path of the walk on is a difficult one. But there's no need to write a kid off before he ever laces up.
Yes, but does this kid have moxie?
Guess what -- his dream was to be the QB at Penn State and he's doing it, so he looks pretty smart to me. As a matter of fact, he has already accomplished more with his life than the guys who sit behind their keyboards and throw rocks at him.
Hahaha - i hope you're post was meant to be sarcastic....
I stopped reading when you said "so he looks pretty smart to me"... Wow Mac sounds like he's the 2nd coming of Einstein to you.
