WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS FROM PENN STATE COMMITS

This week's Penn State commits highlights (SEE VIDEO AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE) come from games played on the weekend of 9/9/2016.  The players featured in this week's video are Dylan Rivers (2017 LB, Sherando, H.S., VA), Cameron Sullivan-Brown (2017 DB, St. Vincent Palotti, H.S., MD), Mike Miranda (2017 OL, Stow-Munroe, OH), Brailyn Franklin (2017 LB, Battlefield H.S., VA) and C.J.

Once again, Cameron Sullivan-Brown shows off his athleticism on both sides of the football.  Dylan Rivers shows that he has a knack for continuously making big plays at the linebacker position.  C.J. Thorpe from Pittsburgh Central Catholic (PA) is a part of our highlight package for the first time this season.
