Show Notes

On this episode of Podward State, hosts Matt Ogden, Matt Paolizzi, and Sam Brungo are joined by 2012 Penn State defensive captain and First Team All-Big Ten defensive lineman Jordan Hill.

Hill talks about why he chose Penn State, staying at Penn State for his senior season in 2012, and how Bill O'Brien impacted the program and led the team to an improbable 8-4 season after a year of scandal and controversy for the program.

Hill also discusses his NFL career, where he won a Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks, the currently 0-3 Nittany Lions, and life after football, where he gives back to his community in a multitude of ways through coaching, operating his foundation, and turning abandoned properties in inner cities into sustainable eco-villages.
