91 days until the start of the season.

As we continue on with the 100 Days Until Penn State Football series, we have hit our first jersey number that is not applicable to this year's team. We had an answer on the current roster for numbers 99 through 92, but 91 leaves us searching the archives. So why not go for one of the best players in Penn State's recent history?

Tamba Hali came to the United States from Liberia, and ended up a stellar success at Penn State under then-defensive coordinator Tom Bradley. Hali's senior 2005 season resulted in a unanimous all-American selection and first team all-Big Ten honors. He was a first round pick for the Kansas City Chiefs, the team he remains with as he enters his 11th pro season. Hali has made six consecutive Pro Bowls and has twice been named a second team all-Pro. Undoubtedly, Hali is one of the great success stories of the 2000s Penn State football program.

Only 91 days until the start of the Penn State football season.
