Not content with having six quarterbacks on the roster, Mark Whipple decided to add one more to the Massachusetts Minutemen's roster. Except this time, he went a bit closer to home. Austin Whipple, Mark Whipple's son, left Penn State in order to play for the Minutemen.
While Penn State is a prestigious football university, or at least was before they became a national punch line in 2011, the Minutemen faithful shouldn't get their hopes up. Austin Whipple was a walk-on at Penn State in 2013, possibly as a friendly gesture between Bill O'Brien and Mark Whipple.
Don't be mistaken though, this is still feel good story. Mark Whipple and his son get to coach/play together on the same team, and if that doesn't bring a smile to your face, go watch Field of Dreams. But come the fall, it's still a three-headed race between Stafford, Frohnapfel and (please god no) A.J. Doyle.
