This kid blows me away. First letsgopsu tells me he's a Schreyer Scholar. Getting into that program is as difficult as getting into Harvard. Mike tells me he's the first three time academic all-american in PSU history. Then I read this.
He has amassed a grade-point average of 3.91 as a secondary education major in the Schreyer Honors College.
Wisniewski divided his time between the football field and State College Area High School classroom last season, teaching 10th-grade English.
And last spring and in the summer of 2009, Wisniewski traveled to the Dominican Republic to take part in a week-long mission trip. Leo and Steve Wisniewski accompanied Stefen on the summer trip and the trio helped build a church and played with the children of Haitian immigrants.
So not only is he exceptionally smart, and gigantic and athletic, he goes on mission trips every year? And he wants to be a high school teacher? (aside for that whole NFL thing) I want this guy for a son-in-law. And I don't even have a daughter...yet. I seriously hope being a pro athlete doesn't mess him up, but it sounds like he's got a solid character foundation.
