Penn State WR Saeed Blacknall On Spring Improvement, TD Catch

We caught up with one of the stars of the Nittany Lions' Blue-White Game to talk about a variety of topics. Included is an FOS exclusive Frame Game of Blacknall's touchdown catch.

By all accounts, junior receiver Saeed Blacknall was one of the top performers during Penn State's spring practice sessions.

He backed that up with a strong Blue-White Game at Beaver Stadium Saturday. Playing on the loaded Blue squad, Blacknall was one of quarteback Trace McSorley's prime targets.

He responded with five catches for 45 yards and a 22-yard touchdown. We caught up with Blacknall after the game. Check out the interview above.

Below, you can see how Blacknall's second-quarter touchdown catch played out in a short version of our exclusive Frame Game.
