Continuing our countdown until Penn State football, today’s featured athlete is no. 63, Collin De Boef. There’s no picture of this redshirt sophomore except for him signing autographs at the Blue White game, so enjoy.
De Boef is an offensive lineman from State College Area High School who contributed to the team’s successful 10-3 record in 2017. De Boef, a high honor roll student, earned a selection to the PSFCA East West All-Star game and all-district accolades in 2017, and all-conference honors as a senior.
Stating that he wanted to fulfill a life-long dream and play football in his backyard, De Boef went the preferred walk-on route to play for the Nittany Lions just like his big brother Adam, who also played for Penn State as a walk-on lineman. By the way, his other brother, Jack, played as a lineman for Purdue.
Although Collin De Boef took a redshirt in the 2018 season, he could be a big (literally) contributor in the future at 6’5”.
