Welcome to Flashback Friday, the new occasional feature where we will look back at a particular event from Penn State football’s past in photos. As you might imagine, we have hundreds of thousands of pictures in our archives, and every so often we stumble into something and think, wow, Nittany Lion fans would probably enjoy revisiting this stuff.
An example? Earlier this week, it was announced that former Penn State quarterback Kerry Collins would be honored for his upcoming induction in the College Football Hall of Fame during the Nittany Lions’ game vs. Ohio State at Beaver Stadium Sept. 29. We seemed to recall Collins being at a Blue-White Game sometime in the past five or six years, so we checked the archives to see what we could see.
We never did find Collins because we became sidetracked. “Mesmerized” might be a better way of putting it. While looking through photographer Harvey Levine’s images from Penn State’s 2015 Blue-White Game, we found one cool photo. Then another. Then another.
Then a mind-blowing shot (to us). Somehow, a future No. 1 overall draft pick was in the house. And we’re talking about the NBA DRAFT.
There were also four young football prospects who were in ninth grade in April of 2015, and one was only 14 years old. Three ended up signing with Penn State. It is kind of incredible to imagine that — barely a year after arriving in Happy Valley —
James Franklin and his staff were already THAT far ahead of the game on the recruiting front.
In the meantime, there were several former PSU football players in the house. And, of course, there were some prospects who ended up at other schools — involving some very interesting storylines.
So without further delay, welcome to Flashback Friday. Make sure you get to slide No. 10. And please let us know what you think about the feature.
