Get to know: WR Cam Sullivan-Brown wants to be actor or broadcaster

Receiver Cam Sullivan-Brown has some cool interests away from the football field, as he’s a broadcast journalism major who’s minoring in theater.

Sullivan-Brown said he loves being in front of the camera and, after football, hopes to have a career as either an actor or sports broadcaster.

Asked what kind of acting he’d like to do and what actors he enjoys, Sullivan-Brown said:

“I want to do a whole bunch of things — theater, TV, movies. A bunch of stuff like that. I watch actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel, the big three. Robert Pattinson and stuff like that. So I want to have a wide range in the acting world.”

As for his influences on the broadcasting side:

“Shannon Sharpe is a personality that is excellent,” he said. “Stephen A. Smith, obviously looking at former players, like LaDainian Tomlinson, coming in doing their thing. And also Michael Strahan, he can do a bunch of different things. I like watching him, as well.”

Sullivan-Brown endured heartbreak early in life as his mother, Kelly Sullivan, died when he was only 3.

“My mom passed away when I was 3 years old from cancer,” he said. “She means a lot to me. I’ve got her (tattoo) on my body. I pray to her every game, every practice. That’s just my mom. I just play for her when I’m on the field, try to make her proud of me.”

Sullivan-Brown got off to a good start early last season, then suffered an injury that limited him to four games. He finished the season with eight catches for 56 yards.

He then entered the transfer portal in the offseason, only to decide to return to Penn State.

“At that point, I was just trying to make the best decision for myself, and coming back was the best decision. That’s basically it,” he said.
