Fan favorites: Posluszny, Arrington, Carter lead long list of fans’ all-time favorite players

We had a lot of fun with this question, and the response from fans was terrific!

I posed the question on Twitter and in my 2-Minute Morning video asking fans to tell us who is their all-time favorite Penn State football player and why.

As expected, many fans picked some of the biggest names in PSU history, such as Paul Posluszny, LaVar Arrington, Ki-Jana Carter, Saquon Barkley, Michael Robinson and John Cappelletti.

But a bunch of fans picked players who weren’t exactly superstars, which makes compiling a list like this so interesting. Such as this interesting choice:

I’m sure LaBarca greatly appreciates that! On a sad note, though, LaBarca’s father, Chip Sr., passed away a week ago at age 83. Chip Sr. was a legendary high school football coach in New Jersey.

As for other fan favorites, Posluszny, Arrington, Carter, Robinson and Barkley received a bunch of mentions.

Numerous other PSU stars also received votes, with Barkley getting a lot of mentions.

And speaking of Ki-Jana Carter …

Here’s a look at a slew of responses and reasons why certain players were picked. Plus some love for members of the historic 2012 team.

And finally, here are some of the picks who may not have necessarily been superstars, but they won over fans’ hearts.
