Only Sean Corcoran (& Matt Stankiewitch) Until Penn State Football

Let's make it snappy. Just 54 more days to football.

Sean Corcoran is listed behind Tyler Yazujian on the depth chart as Penn State's long-snapper. The redshirt-sophomore was valedictorian of his graduating high school class at Bishop McNamara in Kankakee, Illinois. Corcoran has not slowed his pace academically since arriving on campus, carrying a near-perfect GPA in the College of Engineering. Sean's sister Hailey attended PSU, graduating this past May.

Coming out of high school he was rated the #18 snapping prospect in the nation by Kohls. Since then he has gained twenty pounds and now stands 6'0" tall and weighs 205 pounds. Interestingly enough Corcoran is by far the tiniest of all four long snappers on the team. Yazujian (6'0" 251 lbs), Kyle Vasley (6'2" 265 lbs), and Zach Ladonis (6'2" 234 lbs) all dwarf him. It's pretty impressive that the smaller Corcoran is able to hold his own, keeping himself just one injury from stepping into the starting role.

We didn't have a picture of Sean so instead Matt Stankiewitch got the front page photo.

Stank came to Penn State a four star offensive lineman out of Schuylkill Haven, PA. After redshirting his first year in the program, he went on to be a fixture on the line the next four seasons, eventually logging 27 starts through his fifth year in 2012 (split between guard and center). In 2013, he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Patriots; he was later picked up by Penn State south, the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he still is today.
