Joe Biden. Michael Scott. Matt McGloin. Scranton, Pennsylvania has produced many great Americans. Next on the list to make his mark?

Eric Shrive, who checks in at number 75 in our countdown until kickoff.

Shrive is a fifth year senior lineman from the Electric City. Far, far more important than football - Eric was given this past year's Rare Disease Champion Award from Uplifting Athletes at the Maxwell Awards for his impressive leadership in Penn State's Lift for Life event. Eric raised over $70,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association!

Football wise? A US Army All American and five-star prospect out of West Scranton High School, Shrive spent most of his first several years battling for playing time at tackle before moving inside last year. In the most recent depth chart, released last Thursday, Shrive is battling fellow senior Adam Gress for the starting job at right tackle. Take a good look at that picture above - would you mess with him?

Good luck and go get 'em, Eric!
