Remember that time Alice Cooper sang that song about school being out for summer? It’s a great song. I enjoy listening to it after my final day of school every year.
Oh, for those of you who do not know, I am a teacher.
The only issue is whenever that song is blaring in my car after the final day of the school year, school isn’t actually out for summer. It’s just out until summer school starts in the last week of June.
After slightly over two weeks worth of summer schools teachers far and wide are sick and tired of it. But we need the money to make a living, so we suck it up and go about teaching America’s youth while sweating profusely.
Speaking of money, ever wonder who Penn State’s highest earners are? Well, James Freakin’ Franklin tops that list.
A key component of teaching is being prepared. This is also true in coaching, and during the 2017 season there may not have been a team in the country that was better prepared for their opponents than Penn State.
Similar to how teachers tend to specialize in a certain subject, when it comes to college football recruiting coaches usually specialize in a certain area. That is no different for the Penn State coaching staff.
Other times, teachers need to be a jack of all trades. Could Blake Gillikin be that for Penn State in the kicking game this season?
Just as teachers have new students each fall, football teams have new players. One of Penn State’s newcomers that could make an impact this fall is tight end Zack Kuntz. Linebackers Jesse Luketa and Micah Parsons certainly fit the bill as well. The latest additions to Linebacker U appear to be more than ready to wreck havoc on Big Ten offenses.
Speaking of newcomers, Saquon Barkley is quickly becoming the hottest newcomer in the Big Apple. And his quarterback is among those who can’t help but stare at his beautifully crafted quads. Don’t worry, Eli, Saquon is indeed a god like specimen.
