All 105 is a Nittany Sports Now series profiling each Penn State football player. In this edition, we’ll look at redshirt junior offensive lineman Sal Wormley.
Weight: 298 pounds
Hometown: Newark, New Jersey
Before Penn State: Wormley lettered three years at Smyrna High School in Delaware, captaining the team during his senior season.
In his sophomore and junior years, Smyrna won state championships, and Wormley made Delaware’s second-team All-USA Today team as a junior.
He was rated as a 4-star prospect according to 247Sports’s composite score. Wormley committed to Penn State in July of 2018.
At Penn State
2019: Wormley redshirted his first season and only appeared in one game.
2020: Wormley played in three games, being used mostly on special teams.
2021: Didn’t play due to injury.
Where he stands: Wormley has been with Penn State for three seasons and played in a total of four games with little of his snaps being on the offensive line.
He’ll likely start at right guard, but its hard to say how he’ll perform being that he hasn’t played in a lot of games.
His coaches, however, are excited.
A quote about Wormley: “He has really good feet,” offensive line coach Phil Trautwein said at Penn State’s media day earlier this month. “He can bend really well. He’s strong. He’s not the biggest guard we have, but he’s physical and strong, which then puts him in a really good place because he’s athletic and he’s strong, and he can move. I love who he is.”
