    Dan Chisena (Downingtown East, PA) is one of the fastest kids in America. on the track, he's run a wind-legal 10.52 100-meters (actually, it was run into a headwind for the #23 time in the USA this year) and a wind-legal 21.26 (#28 in the USA). he's the absolute fastest kid in the state of Pennsylvania, and it's not even close. he won 3 State Championships this past Saturday (May 23) in the 100 (10.52), the 200 (21.29), and the 4x100 (42.01).

    I didn't see him on the field at all. not sure if he redshirted this year but PSU could use a deep threat to give hackenberg some relief.
