He has spent the 33 years since graduation as a football coach - all with Penn State.
Then there are the team's four specialists - a punter, a placekicker, a kick returner and a captain for the kickoff and punt squads. Two of these players are seniors with high academic averages, and their majors are tough ones: civil engineering and biology. Another has just selected a major in social work. The fourth has not yet chosen a major, usually done at the end of the sophomore year.
None of the 26 athletes is majoring in physical education. Science and engineering majors form a small minority (3 out of 26) among the players' choices. Perhaps one reason is that such subjects require long hours of laboratory work. Often it must be done in the afternoon, making it difficult for athletes to mix training schedules with course programs. Unlike runners and swimmers, who can train by themselves to a certain extent, football players have to practice as a group.
