Anthony Zettel is doing something awesome for the combine
Anthony Zettel has a chance to earn some money with his showing at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week.
But he’ll have a cause besides his draft stock.
The Penn State defensive lineman is raising $180 for each bench press rep at the combine as part of the “Reps for Rare Disease” campaign through Uplifting Athletes. Fans can pledge an amount for each 225-pound rep on the Facebook page.
The same movement was done last year by Penn State tight end Jesse James, who raised over $5,000 because of his 26 reps. If Zettel could hit his $180 goal, it would take him 28 reps to reach $5,000.
As one of the “biggest freaks in college football,” Zettel should raise plenty of money for a worthy cause.
Zettel will be joined by several Penn State players at the combine. He, Austin Johnson, Carl Nassib, Jordan Lucas and Christian Hackenberg will all be competing in Indianapolis this weekend, as well.
