Lindsay Schnell of The Oregonian wrote an engaging piece about Penn State’s freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg. Read it if you get a chance!
Here’s a tidbit:
Hackenberg, a five-star prospect who could have gone anywhere, didn’t bail. “There’s still an aura around this program,” says Hackenberg, who will play his final Beaver Stadium game of the season when Penn State hosts Nebraska on Saturday. “What they built, you can’t take that away. Of course the initial reaction was, ‘What is going to happen?’ But I think when the guys decided to stick around, and when our class decided to stick around, I think that made a statement that we’re not going to let it die.”
I found some of it enlightening, and some refreshing. After military school regimentation, Hacky now wants to let his hair grow, even facial hair that refuses to grow. Anyway, Schnell says it better, so go read, already.
