- Penn State offensive co-captains Matthew McGloin (Scranton) and Michael Zordich (Youngstown, Ohio) have accepted invitations to play in all-star contests. A record-setting quarterback, McGloin has been invited to play in the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Challenge. Zordich is set to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. A running back, Zordich started five games during his senior season and also was one of the squad's premier special teams players, recording four tackles. He was second on the team with 308 yards on 80 carries and had four rushing touchdowns, with a long carry of 25 yards. Zordich also made 15 receptions for 152 yards, with a long catch of 27 yards.
The former Cardinal Mooney High School standout led the Nittany Lions with then career-bests of 50 yards on 11 carries in the 34-7 win over Navy for O'Brien's first career victory. The following week, Zordich re-wrote his career-bests with 75 yards on 15 carries and caught four passes for 39 yards in the win over Temple. He ran for 49 yards on just nine carries, including a 23-yard burst, and had a 27-yard reception in the win over Indiana. - Penn State football
