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.
After McGloin went undrafted in the NFL Draft, he was invited to minicamp with the Washington Redskins. So, in a way, he's attempting to walk on at the NFL level too.
