Penn State Hockey's David Glen wins Senior CLASS Award

New, comments

The senior is the second national postseason award winner under Guy Gadowsky.

Penn State hockey's season may be over, but the team is still pulling in honors after another incredible year. Winning just the second national postseason award for the Nittany Lions program, David Glen is taking home the Senior CLASS Award for men's ice hockey.

The acronym CLASS stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School. It looks to honor athletes for being an exemplary person in their sport, in the classroom, and in day to day life. Glen held the alternate captain's spot for two seasons and was given the role of captaining the team this year. In his four seasons with the Nittany Lions, Glen had 69 points in 122 games played and was named to the Academic All-Big Ten Team this year.

Most notably, however, Glen donated bone marrow in 2013 to help save a life and missed a handful of games in Penn State's opening season in Pegula, which earned him the 2013-14 Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winner.

The Senior CLASS win for Glen isn't Guy Gadowsky's first player to earn the award; Landis Stankievech won the award in 2008 when Gadowsky was still at Princeton.

The last Penn Staters in any sport to win the award were Ariel Scott (volleyball) and John Urschel (football), both in 2013.
