College News

Round 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft is in the books. On Thursday, April 25, the NFL made the trip to Nashville, Tennessee to welcome the newest crop of rookies into the league. The streets of Nashville were filled throughout the night, with Oklahoma Sooners star and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray earning the honor of being the first player off of the board.

Penn State football player Jayson Oweh is an athletic freak. The redshirt freshman defensive end sat out the 2018 season and now appears ready to come out of the gates swinging. According to Oweh, he was recently recorded with a ridiculous time in the 40-yard dash. If Oweh’s claim is to be believed, he clocked a stunning 4.33 seconds.
