Sean Spencer’s intensity is no secret. Turns out, the man they call “Coach Chaos” has been that way for years.
Do a little digging on Spencer, the Nittany Lions’ new defensive line coach, and you’ll stumble across this gem from the Clarion University student newspaper, published in the fall of 1993:
“Free safety Sean Spencer, who makes Ronnie Lott look like Pee-Wee Herman, may be the hardest hitter in Division II.”
Overstatement? Let’s go to the video tape…
We’re not sure of the year, but we know the opponent was IUP. (We’re working on getting more information about this game, as well as the source of the video, so stay tuned…)
As for that hit? We’re guessing even Ronnie Lott would approve.
