GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Quarterback Tommy Stevens was in the game plan more times than not this season as Penn State's offense took advantage of his versatility and even created a special position for him, known as 'Lion.'
The Lion was turned loose in the Fiesta Bowl win, going on and off the field as Penn State and newly appointed offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne made Stevens a large part of the game plan, and because of it he helped keep the Washington defense "more worried about who was where than what was happening," as offensive line coach Matt Limegrover said.
But where Stevens, the redshirt sophomore backup to Trace McSorley ends up next season will be among the most pressing storylines for this team this offseason.
"I don’t know what the plan is honestly," Stevens told me Saturday night seated at his locker. "I’ve told people that I don’t exactly know what’s going to happen after this. I tried to take it game by game and learn as much as I could about the next opponent, so I’m not sure what’s next."
