Chosen by Penn State head coach James Franklin to address the blue-and-white crowd at a pep rally held yesterday afternoon at a minor league baseball park in Scottsdale was Frank Di Leo, a walk-on linebacker for the Big Ten team and younger brother of Dartmouth defensive lineman Rocco Di Leo. From a story in the Centre Daily Times:
Franklin turned the mic over to junior linebacker Frank DiLeo, who thanked the Nittany Lion fans for their support.Speaking of the Di Leos, heading to Hanover in the fall is a third Di Leo brother, Luca, a 6-1, 302 defensive lineman.
Frank Di Leo, a 5-9, 222 junior, appeared in one game for the Nittany Lions this fall. He also caught one Dartmouth game, making it to Fairfield, Conn., on a bye-week to see Dartmouth defeat Sacred Heart. His only chance to see his two brothers next fall (providing 6-3, 290 Rocco is awarded a medical redshirt season) will be Oct. 6 when PSU is off again and Dartmouth takes on Yale in the Bowl.
