Former Penn Stater earns Super Bowl ring with Eagles

UNIVERSITY PARK – How sweet it is.

For former Penn State football player Stefen Wisniewski, Super Bowl LII was pure magic. The Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive lineman made several key blocks in a 41-33 upset win on Sunday night in Minneapolis. The Eagles entered the game as five-point underdogs, but put the wraps on their first-ever Lombardi Trophy when Tom Brady’s Hail Mary pass fell harmlessly to the turf in the waning seconds of the game.

Wisniewski played a vital role for the Birds as they racked up an impressive 538 yards of total offense. The Eagles’ offensive line kept MVP Nick Foles upright all night as he threw for 373 yards.

Wisniewski was a four-year starter at Penn State. In the NFL, he’s played for the Oakland Raiders (second round of 2011 NFL Draft), Jacksonville Jaguars and now, the Eagles.

He is the 40th Penn State football player to win a Super Bowl.
