PWO OL Liam Powers Commits to Penn State

A walk-on named Powers has committed to Penn State.

No, it’s not Chad Powers. Chad Powers is the character who captured America’s collective heart by trying out for Penn State this summer. He also resembles former New York Giants QB Eli Manning.

Chad Powers, of course, wasn’t a real person, but Liam Powers is.

Liam Powers, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound lineman from Central Bucks East High School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, announced his commitment to Penn State as a preferred walk-on Monday.

Penn State offered Powers this past weekend as he visited Happy Valley to watch the team pound Maryland, 30-0.

Powers announced his commitment in a Twitter post where he thanked his family and high school coaches, then thanked James Franklin and the Penn State coaching staff.

”Special thanks to Coach Franklin, (offensive line) Coach (Phil) Trautwein and Coach (Frank) Leonard (analytics coordinator) for giving me this opportunity,” Powers wrote.

He then thanked the schools that recruited him before saying he “can’t wait to get to work and be part of the Penn State community.”

Powers told 247Sports that Trautwein introduced him to Franklin and Leonard this weekend.

“They said they were impressed with my camp performance this summer and my game day film,” Powers said. “Coach Franklin said ‘we would like to extend you an offer’ and they wanted me to be part of the program.”

Powers said the offer “means a lot to him.”

”It’s something I dreamed about growing up since I’ve always been a Penn State football fan.”

Sometimes, dreams do come true.
