Penn State captain David Glen was named the 2016 winner of the Senior CLASS Award as the most outstanding student-athlete in Division I men’s hockey.
A three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree, Glen is a double-major in economics and political science. In 2013, he missed games to donate bone marrow to an unknown recipient.
“My career as a Penn State student-athlete has prepared me for life after college by teaching me what it means to be a professional both on and off the ice,” Glen said in a news release. “My time here has also opened my eyes to the multitude of opportunities that are available for you to serve your community, and the difference your time and effort can make in the lives of others.”
The Senior CLASS Award is an acronym for “Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School.” Voters consider a list of finalists who have notable achievements in the classroom, community, competition and character.
