Penn State’s David Glen earned the Senior CLASS Award for men’s hockey Friday, according to a press release.
The award is given to the “most outstanding senior student-athlete” each year. Glen is the first Penn State men’s hockey player to receive the award, which is voted on by Division I coaches, media and fans.
“My career as a Penn State student-athlete has prepared me for life after college by teaching me what it means to be a professional both on and off the ice,” Glen said in the release. “My time here has also opened my eyes to the multitude of opportunities that are available for you to serve your community, and the difference your time and effort can make in the lives of others.”
Glen missed games to donate bone marrow in 2013 and was honored with the Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship Award for 2013-14. He served as the team captain last season and finished his career with 29 goals, 40 assists and three game-winning goals in 122 games.
Glen, an economics and political science double major, earned Academic All-Big Ten honors three times.
