Micah Parsons ‘Might Pull up to Penn State’ for West Virginia Game

There will be plenty of recognizable people in Beaver Stadium for Penn State football’s 2023 season opener against West Virginia under the lights Sept. 2, from recruits to former players to, of course, those playing and coaching in the game.

Micah Parsons might be one of those people.

Monday evening, the former PSU and current Dallas Cowboys star tweeted that he “might pull up to PSU to watch them smoke West Virginia.”

A PA guy who became a five-star recruit at Harrisburg High School before playing at Penn State from 2018-19, Parsons has stayed close to his alma mater following his college career. This past January, Parsons attended No. 1 PSU wrestling’s dual meet with No. 2 Iowa at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The people he sat with at that meet— which Penn State won— were his college head coach, James Franklin, and the man who currently wears his college number, No. 11 Abdul Carter.

Carter is probably the current Penn State player most closely linked with Parsons. Along with both wearing the prized No. 11 at Penn State, Carter is well on his way to being Linebacker U’s next great linebacker, becoming one of the top freshmen in college football last season. Like Parsons, Carter— from LaSalle College High School in the Philly Area— is a PA guy. So the thought of Parsons watching Carter play is one that excites Penn State fans.

Penn State’s game against West Virginia comes eight days before Parsons’s Cowboys open their 2023 regular-season on Sunday night in the Meadowlands, Sept. 10, against another Penn State great, Saquon Barkley, and the New York Football Giants.

After a successful career at PSU in which he became a consensus All-American, Parsons has been a star in the NFL. This winter, he became the first Cowboy since the late “Bullet” Bob Hayes in 1965-66 to make the AP first-team  in his first two seasons in the league.
