Matt McGloin to have baseball field named after him
Former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin will have a baseball field named after him in his hometown of Scranton, Pa.
Former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin is going to have a baseball field named after him.
The idea was approved by school trustees on Friday, and the baseball field at Penn State's campus in Scranton, Pa., will be named after McGloin. McGloin was a star in high school at West Scranton High School before joining Penn State's football team as a walk-on quarterback.
After struggling a bit during his first two seasons as a starter with the Nittany Lions, McGloin became a brand new player under Bill O'Brien last season. He completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,271 yards, 24 touchdowns and only five interceptions. The 24 touchdown passes tied a school record.
McGloin's senior season helped him earn the Burlsworth Trophy, an award given to the country's top college football player who began his career as a walk-on.
