Former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley was always heralded for his leadership skills and winning attitude. The guy was always known as an elite playmaker, doing whatever it would take to get the Nittany Lions on the right side of the scoreboard.

McSorley’s effort paid off while at Penn State, winning 31 games as a three-year starter with the program. And now, after spending last season with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens on the inactive list, McSorley is wanting to prove he can contribute on the field.

“I want to show coaches that I can help the team on the field this year,” McSorley told Penn Live. “Last year, being inactive all year — this season, I want to be able to get on the field somehow and help the team, help the team win. That’s the biggest thing.”

McSorley was a late selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, going No. 197 overall in the sixth round, selected by the Ravens. Many thought he would be best suited to workout with wide receivers during the NFL Scouting Combine to improve his draft stock. However, McSorley wanted to prove himself as a quarterback.

Now that he’s in the league, McSorley has made it clear that he wants to help in any way possible. Even if that means making a switch on the field.

We’ll see if he’s able to achieve his goals this fall.
