Penn State QB Trace McSorley ignites Nittany Lions offense to earn Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week


psu-tracePenn State has rebounded nicely since losing to Michigan on the road two weeks ago. And the Nittany Lions offense led by first-year quarterback Trace McSorley is taking some of the pressure off a banged up defense.

McSorley used his legs and arm to shoot down previously unbeaten Maryland by accounting for 265 total yards and three touchdowns in the 24-point victory to earn Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week honors.

The 6-0, 205-pound sophomore from Virginia threw for 152 yards on 10 completions with a pair of touchdowns, and ran for another 113 yards on 18 carries with a TD for the 4-2 Nittany Lions.

McSorley is also part of the leadership team for the Penn State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes. He attended the annual Uplifting Athletes Leadership Retreat this past May and helped plan the annual Penn State Lift For Life in support of the rare disease community.
