Curtis Cothran (Newtown, Pa./Council Rock North) never wavered from Penn State, and the defensive end recently spoke at length with NittanyNation about his plans for the offseason, his take on Bill O'Brien and how NFL games at the Linc compare to Beaver Stadium.

NittanyNation: You have about six months until you start up at Penn State and start competing for playing time. How often do you think about that, and what kind of motivating factor is it right now?

Curtis Cothran: I think about it a good amount. It's a really good motivator, especially because I could come on as a true freshman and play. Since the season's over, there's nothing else to really think about except trying to play next year, so I'm just trying to lift, and I've been on a steady grind.
