03/14/2012 - Penn State Pro Day: Running back Stephfon Green (5-9, 204) was just happy to be working out for pro scouts, given the events that threatened to derail his pro prospects last summer. Then Penn State coach Joe Paterno threw Green off the team for disciplinary reasons but allowed him back on the squad after his teammates came to Paterno on Green's behalf. He put up 17 bench-press reps of 225 pounds, recorded a 33-inch vertical and a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump at Pro Day. But Green, who said he is willing to play special teams or even defense to try to make an NFL roster, felt he could have made more of an impression. "I'm my hardest critic," he said. "I just feel like I did mediocre. Nothing that wowed them." - Jeff Reynolds, NFLDraftScout.com

06/14/2011 - Penn State running back Stephfon Green sounded like a man ready to bowl over a linebacker on the way to the end zone. He only spoke at an offseason charity event with teammates, yet the determined senior spoke of redemption after two disappointing seasons in which he was slowed by injuries and overshadowed by career-leading rusher Evan Royster. So, it appears quarterback Rob Bolden isn't the only Nittany Lion eager to bounce back on a team filled with potential comeback storylines after a ho-hum 7-6 campaign. "I feel like my name is forgotten," Green said in between handshakes and autographs at the Pennsylvania Special Olympics opening ceremonies last week. "So, that's why I have to re-establish myself and redeem myself." On Monday, some Nittany Lions, including Bolden, returned to Happy Valley for offseason workouts, and to get ready for the second academic summer session. The returnees rejoined others including Green, who voluntarily stuck around after the spring semester ended. With four successful seasons under his belt, Royster has gone to the NFL after rewriting the Penn State rushing record book. Sophomore Silas Redd might be the heir apparent after a promising freshman season in 2010. But Green hopes to corral some carries, as well. A speedster from the Bronx, N.Y., Green's biggest problem has been health. He's had ankle problems throughout his career, and also suffered a concussion and a neck injury last season. In the spring, Green was limited with a right shoulder injury. His production has declined steadily, from 105 carries and 578 yards his freshman year in 2008, to 71 and 319 in 2009, to 48 and 188 last season. "I'm 100-percent healthy," he said. "I've been doing everything for a while now." - AP Sports
