Trace McSorley OUT as Penn State Football Honorary Captain, Eyeing NFL Return

Legendary Penn State Football quarterback Trace McSorley was set to be an honorary captain this weekend during the Penn State White Out, and had been on campus working out in the Nittany Lions facility this week.

However, per a release from Family Clothesline, where McSorley was set to have an autograph session this weekend, those plans have changed.

McSorley will miss the White Out while pursuing an NFL return after receiving “a last-minute call to meet with an NFL team.”

McSorley went through training camp with the New England Patriots this season before being released as rosters were trimmed to 53 before the season.

Meanwhile, Grant Haley is still expected to act as honorary captain this weekend.

Penn State Football kicks off against Iowa at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday night.
