It’s always great to see former players make the trip back to State College. Not only does it give fans a chance to see a former Penn State football player who they are used to watching on Sundays, but it also gives the player a sense of appreciation for the life that they used to live. As the years go on, players will get further and further away from their playing days in Happy Valley, but it will always be home. Now, Micah Parsons who last suited up for the Nittany Lions back in the 2019 Cotton Bowl has teased a possible homecoming.

Micah Parsons has gone from a five-star recruit in high school to finding his way to make a massive impact on the college football field, by the end of the 2019 Cotton Bowl it was clear that Parsons was the best player on the field and ready for his next chapter. Now, he has absolutely taken the NFL by storm, with how Dallas Cowboy defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has utilized him as both a pass rusher and a linebacker they are truly getting the most out of Parsons’ skillset. Through a series of recent tweets, it sounds like he has plans to visit Penn State during the West Virginia game.

Back on August 7th, he tweeted the following:

Then, last night he had this to say:

This leads us to believe that not only will Parsons be in attendance for the week one game against West Virginia, but he also might be cheering the loudest out of all the fans in Beaver Stadium. Although Micah Parsons has moved on to the NFL, he always makes it clear that he is proud of his roots at State College.

Reviewing Micah Parsons’ career at Penn State

Some might argue that Parsons was played out of position during his time with the Penn State football team until his very last game. Now, the Penn State community can see how dominant of a player he is as an edge rusher, but that didn’t stop him from putting up monster numbers in 2019. That season he accounted for 109 tackles, 14 tackles-for-loss, and 5 sacks. In the Cotton Bowl alone he put up 14 tackles 2 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, and forced two fumbles. It’s safe to say Micah Parsons was an absolute monster during his playing days at Penn State.
