The Blue and White Charles Woodson.
Since the moment he stepped on campus, Adrian Amos has been a staple in Penn State’s defense. As a true freshman, Amos appeared in every game at both corner and on special teams. He made his first career start against the Iowa Hawkeyes, and finished the year with thirteen tackles one interception, four pass breakups and five passes defended.
As a sophomore in a new system, Amos’ role expanded. Coach Butler and Roof both immediately recognized the young corner’s versatility and range, and attempted to turn him into the Nittany Lions own version of Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson. Amos has lined up all over the field during his first two years at Penn State. With defensive stalwarts Stephon Morris, Michael Mauti, and Gerald Hodges lost to graduation, Amos’ role as a playmaker should only increase.
