Introducing Our New Series “PSU in the NFL”

As exciting as it is to open a new season of college football, it’s hard not to remember some of Penn State’s past players that have since departed from the football program. Some of those players have recently left while others have been gone for years. Some have gone onto to pursue non-football careers but others have made it to the NFL and are now playing all across the country. 

To help you keep up with our beloved Penn State football alums, the For the Glory team is proud to announce our new series “PSU in the NFL.” Each week of the NFL season, I will bring you through how every Penn Stater did with their respective NFL teams. 

Stay tuned each and every Tuesday of the NFL season for the latest! The first edition will be brought to you on Tuesday September 10th.
