Penn State football coach James Franklin announced today that tight end Adam Breneman (Mechanicsburg) will be out indefinitely with an injury. Coach Franklin asked that the public support and respect Adam and his family’s privacy.
Breneman made 15 receptions for 186 yards and three touchdowns during his true freshman season, hauling in a scoring strike in each of the last three games. His 68-yard touchdown catch and run in Penn State’s big 31-24 win at No. 14 Wisconsin was the Nittany Lions’ longest play from scrimmage last season.
The former Cedar Cliff High School All-American started five games as a true freshman in 2013. He is secretary of Penn State’s Uplifting Athletes chapter, which raised a record $140,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association in 2013-14 and nearly $1 million since the first Penn State Lift For Life event in 2003.
Franklin’s Nittany Lions are in the midst of their second week of training camp in preparation for the Aug. 30 season opener vs. UCF in the Croke Park Classic in Dublin, Ireland. The game will kick at 8:30 a.m. ET and air on ESPN2, the Penn State Sports Network and GoPSUsports.com.
