Coaches Thoughts: Head Coach Adam Clay
"I am so proud of our team and the leadership from our senior class that was shown in the effort today. I have talked all season about how this team is different from the past two years that we fell one spot short of the playoffs. The edge we have this year comes from the leadership in our upperclassmen and the culture they have helped us build over the past four years."
Penn State Harrisburg will be back in action Wednesday October 25th when they face Mary Washington at 3:00pm with major playoff implications on the line.
