Bettendorf, IA. inside linebacker prospect Pat Angerer (6-foot-1, 215 pounds) has returned from his one-day camp at Penn State and talks about his camp experience with the Nittany Lions.
“My parents and I got back at 5AM on Monday morning from the Penn State camp," Pat Angerer said. “My parents are really tough, much tougher than I am. They shared the drive and I was able to just sit back and enjoy the 11 hour one-way trip to Penn State. My parents are just crazy, but I'm lucky to have them support me like they do, and the trip to the Penn State camp was definitely worth the trip."
Angerer fills us in on his Penn State camp experience.
"I went for a one-day camp at Penn State, and I was pretty amazed at the amount of players who were at the camp. They easily had over 1,000 kids at the camp. The camp was basically testing and drill work, with no pads and obviously no hitting. I thought that I tested really well at the camp, and I ran a 4.46/40 yard dash and I think that really surprised the coaches. I was able to work really closely with coach (Ron) Vanderlinden, who's the linebackers coach at Penn State, and I'm glad that I did because I learned a ton of technique from him."
"The coaches had a lot of good things to say to me after the camp, and the coaches want me to call them later this week, so I'll make sure that I check in with them. They said that they will be making their evaluations this week and that they will be able to let me know where I stand with them later this week."
Angerer also came away very impressed with Penn State.
"The campus and the facilities are top notch, and the campus is really sweet. I was also impressed with the town and the surrounding area, it's just awesome to see mountains all around. The campus and the town really support Penn State football. They just have a great atmosphere at Penn State and I came away really impressed."
"I'm basically done with the college camps this summer. I made a handful of camps that I wanted to make, and now it's time for me to get ready for my senior season."
