Photo of the Day: Wade sends Michigan’s Shea Patterson a message

In today’s photo, Penn State’s athletic and talkative safety intimidates the Wolverine quarterback

We continue our series highlighting our wonderful photographer Heather Weikel’s favorite images from the 2019 football season. Give Heather a follow at @hweikelphoto on Twitter to see more of her work.

Back to the White-Out for today’s photo, as we see Lamont Wade punishing Shea Patterson (or rather, the after-effects). Wade has had a colorful career with the Nittany Lions, but 2019 was a showcase of the athletic ability, football IQ, and leadership skills that many were hoping to see following his commitment to Penn State and subsequent arrival from Clairton High.

Wade tied a Big Ten record with three forced fumbles against Ohio State, and had seven tackles against the Wolverines, earning him honorable mention All-Big Ten as a junior. We expect bigger things from Wade when football resumes for Penn State and the rest of the country, but sadly, he will have to find a new Michigan quarterback to terrify (perhaps Dylan McCaffrey?).

Stay safe, everyone.
