Only Tony Pittman Until Penn State Football

There has been a long line of family tandems playing football for the blue and white, and though his father, Charlie, made an indelible impression upon me during his speech at the memorial for legendary coach Joe Paterno, today we're going to focus on Pittman the younger.

Tony Pittman came to Happy Valley from Erie, by way of Massachusetts, to the surprise of very few:

Like his father, Tony never lost a game he started as a Nittany Lion. He was an instrumental part of the 1994 Rose Bowl-winning team, starting all twelve games at cornerback, and was named both second team All-Big Ten and first team Academic All-American.

Tony spent two seasons at number 25 before switching back to his father's number, 24, his final year at Penn State. A well-respected businessman, he remains active with the Penn State community, giving talks at TEDxPSU and hosting a weekly podcast throughout the football season.
