    Alright Heroes, we have kicked off our 5th season of NCAA 13 and despite some lulls in the road, we have continued to chug along.​
    We have seen new coaches emerge and old coaches leave, but we still continue with a solid group of individuals, and I believe now we have the roster to keep moving without issue.​
    Five years in and your teams success really starts to show on YOUR shoulders as a coach.​
    Here is the thread to brag about it. Who have been some of your impact recruits along the way? What commitments have turned out to be great players on your roster? They don't need to be freshman this year, they could be Seniors or have already left for greener ($$$) pastures. Just guys you have recruited to your team that have made their name known in the 5 years of SH.​

    Very true Cimmy, this should be the last year for any players that were on your rosters to begin the release (Diggs is the last one I have left). For Maryland, obviously QB Kevin Brown has been a huge recruit for us. Also, WR Aaron Clark had a good season last year in his first true season with any significant playing time. He should continue to improve this season and we're expecting big things. Also, CB Ryan Nolan who is a junior this year should be a stud along with a few other young CBs who are developing well.

    Penn State

    DE Darrell Walker, Drafted DE
    Penn State has seen leaders and legends pass through Happy Valley over the years, but the biggest name to pass through State College in recent memory has been Defensive End Darrell Walker. Walker, a 3-peat winner of the Lombardi and Nagurski Awards, not only set the bar for DEs in college football, he brought it to the moon. setting both the single season sack record for the NCAA (26, 2014) and career sack record for the NCAA (71), he was one player who was consistently gameplanned against, but never successfully stopped. A current NFL Rookie, Walker started his Freshman year at PSU and began his memorable journey from their. Hailing from Scranton, PA, Walker is above and beyond the best recruit this coach has found....ever.​
    QB Nick Kirby, Current Starting QB
    QB Nick Kirby came in and started his Freshman year as well. A 4-star ATH, Kirby showed he could play QB and excel. That is exactly what he has done. He holds the Penn State Single Season Passing YDs (3,101), Single Season Passing TDs (25), and PSU Career Passing TDs (48) Records, and will continue to add to his totals as the starting QB of the Nittany Lions for the upcoming season. A dual-threat monster, Kirby had shared snaps with fellow scrambler Scott Caldwell, who will likely again see playing time in option situations. Nick didn't gain the job quietly. He beat out RS Junior Fred Garrison for the job, even after Garrison brought PSU back in the 2013 season. Despite many saying Garrison has the better arm, it is Kirby's total package that has won him the hearts of thousands of the PSU faithful.​
    HB Chris Hackett, Current AA HB

    Running Back Chris Hackett just emerged onto the scene last year, but proved himself a worthy candidate to be noticed here. A RS Junior, Hackett saw some snaps in his RS Freshman season behind Bill Belton, but got the starting role last year and led the team. His 1,239 rushing yards and 17 TDs were good enough to give this star All-American honors. With only 3 fumbles in his 357 rushing attempts, Hackett is a security blanket for the Nittany Lions and a sure bet to gain yards (359 Yards after 1st Hit last season). Look for him to combine with Kirby to lead the team to another stellar season.​
    FB Terrence DeAngelis, Current Hidden Gem

    Fullback was an extremely big hole for the Nittany Lions four years ago, and they found one FB interested from South Carolina. FB Terrence DeAngelis wasn't the biggest name in the books and he certainly didn't have the attributes to show it, but he came to Happy Valley and proved his worth as a major workhorse for the Nittany Lions. He isn't the running FB most would look for (Only 26 attempts in 3 years), but he has been a giant factor in the passing and run game as a blocker. He is a big reason why Hackett now carries All-American honors, and if history continues, look for DeAngelis to have his name honored as well.​
    TE Ross Griffin, Current Nittany Lion

    A resident of Ohio, Griffin was expected to sign with the Buckeyes. However, a last ditch effort by PSU changed him into a Nittany Lion and a major part of this offense. With eerily similar numbers in his first two season (2014: 34 Receptions, 3 TDs :: 2015:: 33 Receptions, 3 TDs) Griffin has proven to be a player in this offense. At 6'3" he has become a huge red zone thread, keeping the Nittany Lions in scoring position and ensuring first downs. Griffin's role will not change this upcoming season.​
    C Jesse McCoy, Current AA Gem

    A 3-star recruit, McCoy came in and redshirted his freshman year. The following year, he came in, started, and emerged. A current All-American, McCoy worked harder than any other offensive lineman in camp and has proven himself a leader of this football team. An aggressive lineman, Jesse has 39 pancakes on his career and has only given up 5 sacks in 2 years. McCoy will continue to be an All-American and Keystone of this offensive line.​
    OLB Ryan Morse, Current LB U Star
    Ryan Morse was one of those recruits that didn't shine in many coaches eyes across the country. However, Penn State saw a player who would be a perfect fit in their scheme. That is exactly what Morse has developed into. A senior leader and All-American, Morse has enforced fear in the opposing offenses. With 109 total tackles and 5.5 sacks over his career, he has become a poster child for Linebacker U. He also makes plays happen. 4 total Ints, 2 Forced Fumbles, 10 Pass Deflections, and 2 Defensive Touchdowns have vaulted him to be the top LB in this current roster.​
    CB-Duo Grant Shelton (Current) and Mike McKenzie (Drafted)

    Both of these CBs came in the same recruiting class and clicked as brothers ever since. McKenzie has gone on to the NFL, but his "brother" stays as a Captain of this football team. Shelton will lead join Morse in leading the defense this year. As McKenzie was the guy making the big interceptions, Shelton became the shut down Cornerback. He has 50 total tackles and has disrupted the passing game of opposing offenses consistently over the last 3 years. Look for the to go unchanged.​

    BG On The Rize!

    Oct 5, 2009
    6'2 228 QB

    Probably the most decorated player in Coach BG's coaching era, Hall has surpassed almost all of Clemson's single season passing marks. In his third year as Clemson's primary signal caller, Hall is the Tigers highest rated passer, has the most passing td's in a career and before its all said and done, will have won more games than any Tiger QB.......EVER! Not to mention that he is currently 28-0 as a starter and has won 2 National Titles. Hall will no doubt go down as Clemson's best player in history!
