Only Jeff Hartings Until Penn State Football

It's too bad we're not fans of the Rainbow Warriors, because then if somebody asked how many days 'til football, we could say: "For Hawai'i? Five-Oh."

Jeff Hartings isn't just one of the great Nittany Lion OL, despite coming from a school that churns out great linemen like it ain't no thang, but he's also one of the former Nits with the best pro careers in recent memory. Oh, right, and he did it while excelling off the field, too. Basically, Hartings is your quintessential Penn Stater.

A two-time All American who anchored the line that opened up so many holes for Ki-Jana Carter and kept Kerry Collins so well protected in that magical 1994 season, Hartings was a consensus All-American the following year. Just as impressively, he was a two-time Academic All-American, too. A first-round draft pick of the Detroit Lions in 1996, Hartings made his mark on the NFL with the Steelers, twice named to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams, and starting for the Super Bowl XL Champions, after which he walked off into the sunset.
