Only Theo Johnson Until Penn State Football

84 days!

NCAA Football: Illinois at Penn State Matthew OHaren-USA TODAY Sports

The other half of the shake ‘n bake tight end combo we’re all expecting this upcoming season is our 84 days representative. Theo Johnson saw action in three games last season as a true freshman, catching four balls for 56 yards but more importantly, showcasing the potential for being a stud going forward. Look for the former blue chip recruit out of Canada to break out in 2021 and catch his first few collegiate touchdown passes, especially now that he’s experienced his first true offseason strength and conditioning program under Dwight Galt.

Perhaps even more importantly, Theo has quickly taken on a leadership role within the team, having spoken alongside James Franklin, Eric Barron, and Tom Wolf back in early May to encourage Pennsylvanians to continue getting vaccinated. Ultimately, enough Pennsylvanians heeded the advice and as a result, we will get our full-capacity Beaver Stadium White Out again this Fall.
