Only Sam Ficken Until Penn State Football


Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

I don't think there's anything I can say about Sam Ficken that hasn't already been said on this site. Honestly, it's a Sunday, and it would be a waste of your time to read repetitive words about the ex-Nittany Lion kicker. He's one of the best to ever come through Happy Valley, and his road to redemption from the Virginia game as a sophomore to the Boston College game as a senior has been really well documented. Other than Michael Mauti and maybe Matt McGloin, I think you can argue that no player has received more adulation around here over the last three years than $ammy Franchise. So, really, no matter what I type, it's probably going to be something you've read before.

Having said that, I'm just gonna bombard you with videos of people losing their shit after Ficken nailed the game-winning PAT in the Pinstripe Bowl. We football in 97 days, everyone.
