Parsons aims to take Lions to championship

UNIVERSITY PARK — Micah Parsons didn’t start a single game last season and still led Penn State in tackles, quite a remarkable feat at the school known as Linebacker U. Predicting success was easy for Parsons, the No. 1 linebacker recruit in the nation coming out of high school. But even ...

Stevens puts injuries in the past

Tommy Stevens seems keenly aware of the questions or concerns some fans may have about him, and Penn State’s projected starting quarterback tried to rebut a couple of the narratives Wednesday. Speaking to reporters after practice, Stevens addressed issues about him being able to stay ...

Nickal wins Hodge Trophy

UNIVERSITY PARK — Bo Nickal has been a show-stopper for the Penn State wrestling team ever since he first stepped on the mat in a blue and white singlet on Nov. 13, 2015. In that match he rolled up a 21-6 technical fall in front of a sold-out Rec Hall. Over the next four years, he ...

Brackets out for NCAA mats

When Hayden Hidlay made his spectacular run to the 157-pound final at the 2018 NCAA Wrestling Championships, he did it as a No. 1 seed. If he wants to duplicate that run, or take one step up to the top of the podium in 2019, his path will be a bit steeper. The NCAA released seeds and brackets ...
