State College’s Pete Haffner Offered Walk-On Spot with Penn State

by on January 23, 2017 3:00 PM

State College Area High School linebacker Pete Haffner announced on Twitter that he received a preferred walk-on offer from Penn State. The 6-foot-1 Little Lion has a chance to join fellow State College High alumnus Adam De Boef on the roster, who walked-on to the program with the 2014 class.

Haffner had a stellar senior season, nabbing a Mid-Penn Commonwealth Division Co-Defensive MVP honor alongside Penn State commit Damion Barber.

Haffner also was named to the Pennsylvania Football Writers All-State team in a year where he tallied 86 tackles and five sacks on the defensive side of the ball. As a running back, he accounted for 545 rushing yards on the offensive side — helping lead State College to a share of the Mid-Penn Commonwealth title.

You can check out some of Haffner’s highlights on both sides of the ball during his time with Little Lions on Hudl. With great instincts on the defensive line, he is a hard hitter that has a knack for getting into the backfield.
