  Penn State redshirt senior defensive end Shaka Toney has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, he announced via Twitter on Monday night. He made the decision after discussions with his family, coaches and teammates, he wrote. The 6-foot-3, 252-pound Philadelphia native started in all nine games this season for the Nittany Lions. He finished the 2020 season with 31 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, five sacks, one pass defended and one forced fumble. Toney was named first-team All-Big Ten by the media, the conference's coaches and the Associated Press. For his career, Toney had 115 total tackles, 29.5 tackles for a loss, 19.5 sacks, four passes defended, four forced fumbles and one fumble recovered. His 19.5 career sacks are good for 10th all-time in school history. - Centre Times

  By any measure, the Penn State football team's season has been a disappointment. At 2-5, there is no other way to label a program that had aspirations of being a contender for the national title before the campaign opened. But leave it to defensive end Shaka Toney, ever an eternal optimist, to see the positives in losing far more than winning. "Losing isn't fun, and I've never lost this many games in my career on any team," Toney said during a video conference with media on Tuesday. "Now, I've just learned how to handle it. I learned how I can get better from it and what I can do to help to get out of losing. It was all a lesson. It ain't the end of the world. … You've just got to maximize your opportunities when things don't always go as planned. You've got to learn situations and maximize situations when they don't got the best way.

"I just feel like it was a big learning year. There's a lot of things you can just take away this year that hopefully you worked on in yourself." Presumably, there is little refinement for Toney's affable, enthusiastic nature. Even with the guarantee that Penn State will have with a losing regular season for the first time since 2004, Toney preached the importance of completing the task at hand. "You don't win every marathon you run," Toney said. "You don't win every race. But if you finish, that's what means the most because now, you can get up and learn. Whereas if you quit and you just lay down and keep letting people walk all over you, you ain't learning nothing. You're not getting better. You're taking no lesson from the loss. All you're learning is that I can quit when stuff gets tough. "You always want to see things through. That's all we preach is to finish strong. It ain't always how you start. It's about how you finish." - Tribune Review

  Shaka Toney earned second-team All-Big Ten honors while recording 6 1/2 sacks last season. That makes him the sack leader among Penn State's returning players. But that's only part of the reason junior defensive tackle P.J. Mustipher respects the Nittany Lions' fifth-year senior defensive end. The other part stems from a conditioning session last summer when Toney pushed Mustipher further than the younger player thought he could go. Mustipher, 6-foot-4, 305 pounds, was doing pull-ups one day when he decided to use elastic bands for assistance. "Doing pullups for bigger guys is difficult," Mustipher said. "Shaka walks over and says, 'You don't need the band. You can do that pull-up. I'm not going to allow you to do the pull-up with the band.'"

Mustipher wasn't sure he could do it, but all of a sudden, he did eight without the band. "That goes to show you he cares so much about who you are and wants to develop you," Mustipher said. "He's not always going to tell you what you want to hear. He's going to tell you what you need to hear. "He's been a leader of this team since I stepped on campus. He's always pointed me in the right direction. It's going to be some tough love with Shaka, but at the end of the day, he's going to have your best interests at heart because he really cares about you and cares about the team as a whole." - Tribune Review

  Big Ten defenses turned in three of the season's top five sack totals over the weekend, with Penn State leading the way with 10 against Purdue. Wisconsin had nine against Kent State and Michigan had eight against Iowa. Penn State took down Purdue's Jack Plummer 10 times, seven in the first half, and finished with its highest number of sacks since 1999 and one shy of the school record. Defensive ends Shaka Toney (3) and Yetur Gross-Matos (2) combined for half of Penn State's sacks. Eight players had a hand in at least one.

“I didn't even know we had 10 sacks until we got into the locker room,” linebacker Jesse Luketa said. “I'm not surprised, though. We call them the "Wild Dogs" for a reason. We let them loose and it was time to hunt. I-m excited for them. A couple weeks ago there was talk about how our front four weren't as productive as what we wanted, and today they took that to heart and went out and executed.” Purdue had minus-19 rushing yards, the fewest against Penn State since 1978 and fifth-fewest since 1947. - AP College Football
