Wallace A Nittany Lion
It was a big day for the Eagles of Montgomery County High School as Cameron Wallace became the first ever football player to sign a letter of intent to play for a Power 5 college program. Wallace has made the decision to head to Happy Valley to play for the Nittany Lions of Penn State.
Penn State held a live stream for their Early National Signing Day festivities and Wallace was the twelth player on their board to sign on that day, putting him in very good company with some of the top players in the nation.
Montgomery County Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Don Vandygriff said, Cameron is the first Montgomery County football player in history to sign with a Power 5 school. He is going to be in the mix early at Penn State. In the recruiting process they have told me he is going to be a running back or maybe a slot receiver. It is really going to be a good fit for him. We are extremely proud and excited for Cam and his family.”
Wallace stated, “It is truly a blessing to have this opportunity to play for Penn State. It is a great college both in academics and athletics. They have an awesome coaching staff. I want to thank my teammates, family, and coaches for helping me.”
His mother Latoyria added, “We are so proud of him. He is so humble, respectful, just a great son. He has come a long way and we are so excited for him. The coaches, the staff, everything at Penn State is just a great fit for him.”
Taneka Coglin, his aunt, said, “This means so much. He has overcame many obstacles along the way. He had a lot of doubt his junior year, but has pushed through, kept God first, and he has done that and look where we are today. I am definitely proud of him.”
