Just got an email from Linganore Coach Rick Conner, who reports fullback Zach Zwinak, considered by some to be the nation’s top player at his position, has committed to play for Penn State.
And from the Gazette (MD):
Zwinak noted that he didn’t really have a goal for the game in terms of yardage, but he had no trouble crossing the 100-yard mark in the first half, finishing the evening with 209 yards on 10 carries, including another touchdown run of 60 yards.
“It all starts on the [offensive] line,” Zwinak said.
He noted that the coaching staff’s ability to call the right play at the right time has been a major boon. But perhaps more importantly for Zwinak, he no longer has to worry about what school he’ll be playing for in 2010. After Friday night’s game, he made a call to Penn State to verbally commit.
“It’s a great school, great people, great football,” Zwinak said. “It’s a relief. I can just focus on my team and the season.”
Welcome Aboard! And thanks for coming to Pennnnn Staaaate!
