  Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons has generated most of the headlines on defense this offseason - but strength coach Dwight Galt said another young linebacker is gaining ground after "one of the greatest improvements" he's ever seen. Sophomore Jesse Luketa has turned a lot of heads these last 18 months, according to Galt. Parsons used to be "1A" to Luketa's "3C," the strength coach added, but now it's more 1A and 1B.

"Jesse Luketa has done an unbelievable job," Galt said Friday during Penn State's annual Lift for Life event, which raises money to fight rare diseases. "In the 18 months or whatever he's been here - 19 months? - he's had one of the greatest improvements I've seen in an athlete." Galt didn't need to consult his records to rattle off some of Luketa's improved numbers. Some of the gains are so stark it's hard to forget: Luketa came into Happy Valley with a max bench of 245 pounds and, on Tuesday, did 360 pounds. He used to run an official 4.92 in the 40-yard dash; now, he's down to 4.68. And his vertical jump is up to 37 inches. - Centre Times
