The struggles D.J. Newbill has faced on the court this season are nothing compared to what he went through this fall. His Penn State teammates have helped him through both.

Thanks for the write up Jeff. It's too bad "Meme" never got to see DJ play for PSU, but it seems pretty obvious she was very supportive and proud of him. Hopefully next year, with a better surrounding class, this PSU team can surprise a little.
Have to really feel for DJ. Very happy to hear about the team being so supportive.
Great article Jeff! It's nice to hear from players the way Pat runs the program. That was a first class move for the whole team and staff to go to the funeral.
Nice article Jeff. Brought tears to my eyes. DJ's been through some stuff this year and he's handled himself wonderfully!
Coach Chambers is leading the program the Penn State way!!
DJ, I'll be right there at Northwestern cheering you on tomorrow night. I get to see you play in person for the first time!! Can't wait!!! I'm pulling for you now more than ever!! Glad you're at Penn St.
Jeff, great article!!!!
Team is going to be sneaky good next year. Really looking forward to it.
