CANTON, Pa. (WETM) – Canton senior standout tight end Ben Knapp is heading to Happy Valley.
The 6’4, 240-pound two-time all-state pick has committed to play football at Penn State. Knapp announced on his Twitter page on Monday night that he is headed to State College.
Ben says he has dreamed about going to Penn State since he was a kid and hopes that his signing will provide opportunities for local athletes in the future. ” I want to create opportunities for people below me. Kids younger than I am to have that opportunity to go to bigger places,” said Knapp.
Knapp was an all-state pick at tight end in Class A in 2018 and 2019. Knapp had 801 yards receiving and eight touchdowns for the Warriors in 2019.
