2-Minute Morning

2-Minute Morning (9-24): Who’s your all-time favorite PSU football player?

A fun question for today: Name your favorite Nittany Lion football player.

It might be a superstar, such as LaVar Arrington, Saquon Barkley, Paul Posluszny, etc. But for a lot of sports fans, their favorite player is often a guy who wasn’t necessarily the star getting all the recognition and glory.

That’s why I’m standing in front of my autographed Shawon Dunston jersey from his Chicago Cubs days. Dunston has always been my favorite baseball player, even though he wasn’t the Cubs’ superstar (that was Ryne Sandberg). I played shortstop, just like Dunston, who had the greatest infield arm of all time. Plus he always hustled and played with great passion, which I loved.

So, whether it’s a superstar or not, tell me who your favorite PSU player is of all time. Leave comments below on my Twitter feed, and I’ll use a lot of them in a story on the website later today.
