The coronavirus isn’t easy for anybody. In sports, it has altered pro careers, shaken college athletics, and ended high school careers early.
There isn’t a guarantee that the cycle won’t continue next year. Local athletes like Harrisburg’s Nate Bruce are hoping for progress.
“Big Nate,” as folks around the area know him, is a rising senior and is a year away from heading up to State College and fulfilling his dream by playing on the offensive line up at Penn State. The 6-foot-4, 325 pound teen made it from a relatively unknown recruit a year ago to getting to choose from a number of Division-I programs.
Nate and his mom, Arlene, talked about what it’s like communicating with his future Nittany Lions team and how he’s staying in shape.
