Announcements and Important Events
In the team’s semifinal loss to Martinsburg on November 30, Penn fractured his back. Now, he says everything is healing up the way it should. Penn expects to be ready for action in the fall. He’s undecided in terms of picking a major and is using his first semester to “get the basics out of the way.”
Day was the leading receiver for the Patriots, and he achieved team-highs in each receiving category. Going for 1,027 yards on 61 catches and eight touchdowns, Day was the speedster Penn relied on when extending plays. He also found a home on special teams by coming the teams leading kick returner. He echoed the others’ comments about playing together as a team in 2019, as he’s ready to prove what he can do at GSC.
“I’ll remember the love I got from all the coaches and the team. My first couple years here, we didn’t really have the best outcomes of the season,” Day said. “Then, we had a chip on our shoulder. We wanted to be one of the top teams in the state, and through team meetings, we talked about it. I was talking with one of the coaches (At Glenville State), and he said there’s not much to do there. The team bonds well, and the team chemistry is really high.”
That feeling of brotherhood and Day’s aspirations of majoring in Physical Education and Health make this a great fit for him. He wants to become a P.E. teacher.
When Tucker arrived on the scene in 2019, it was his first year playing varsity football.
