Adam Breneman announced this evening on Twitter that he will resume his football career at the University of Massachusetts. 

Back in January, Breneman wrote an emotional letter to the Penn State community announcing his intention to move on from football after suffering numerous knee injuries dating back to his days at Cedar Cliff High School. 

In what would turn out to be his only significant contribution on the field for the Nittany Lions, Breneman hauled in 15 passes for 186 yards and 3 touchdowns as a freshman. There is no doubt every PSU fan will remember his 68-yard score in the 2013 finale against Wisconsin in which the Lions upset the Badgers.

After another injury cost him the 2014 season, Breneman returned to the field in 2015. While he didn't play much, it was great to see the hard work that he put in to get back onto the field pay off.

Breneman's contributions will be remembered for generations in Happy Valley, as along with Christian Hackenberg, Brendan Mahon, and Garrett Sickels, he kept together the core of the 2013 recruiting class despite the NCAA sanctions. Additionally, Breneman was a model student and a great ambassador for the team and the university, and we're all proud to say that he will forever be a Nittany Lion.

Best of luck with the Minutemen, Adam!
