Drew Allar has ascended to five-star status on 247Sports and is also the No. 1-ranked quarterback on On3. However, his play on the field has somehow been even more impressive than those numbers may imply. His latest accolade comes by the way of being named the Northeast Ohio Player of the Year.

Congratulations to Medina QB Drew Allar, who was voted Player of the Year for the 2021 regular season!

Allar has certainly lived up to the billing that made him offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich's top priority from the moment he arrived in Happy Valley. He'll continue to rack up the awards as he transitions from high school to Penn State. Fans have plenty of reason to be excited.
Kaden Saunders Day
Speaking of highly-ranked Ohio recruits committed to Penn State, another was honored in a very unique way. Four-star wide receiver Kaden Saunders was given his own day by the Mayor of Westerville, Ohio.

Saunders is arguably the most electric recruit committed to Penn State and is a tremendous weapon to pair with the cannon-armed Allar. With the Lions are losing Jahan Dotson after this season, there is certainly a window for Saunders to come in and contribute right away as a true freshman.
One last note, if you haven't done so yet, be sure to go check out the new Penn State site on On3, run by our friends formerly of Blue White Illustrated on the Rivals network.
