The countdown to Penn State football returning rolls on and we’re getting closer to hitting the 50-day mark. With just 54 days left until footnsll returns I’m Happy Valley, we look at another Wild Dog, senior defensive tackle Robert Windsor.
Windsor has had quite the career development during his time in Happy Valley. When the Fond du Lac, Wisconsin product signed with Penn State in February of 2015 he was one of the Lions lowest rated recruits. Since then, he’s developed into a tremendous defensive tackle and a legitimate NFL prospect.
Windsor enters 2019 coming off a career season. As a junior, Windsor recorded 38 tackles including 10 for a loss and 6.5 sacks. His best performance came in a storybook way when his home state Wisconsin Badgers came to Happy Valley. In that game he had six tackles including career highs in tackles for a loss and sacks with two a piece.
Entering this season, Windsor is expected to be a starter and one of the leaders on the Lions defensive line. Touted as one of the top-10 draft eligible defensive tackles entering this season, Windsor will look for another big season. For him, it will be important to limit his penalties (especially jumping offsides) and to stay on the field (suspended for Citrus Bowl).
Windsor, alongside Yetur Gross-Matos, Shane Simmons, Shaka Toney, and the rest of the Wild Dogs should create another imposing defensive line for the Lions in 2019. Last year, the Nittany Lions lead the country in sacks per game with 3.61 per game.
Only 54 days until Penn State football!
