New York Giants Sign Southern Regional Grad Glenn Carson to Practice Squad
Linebacker Glenn Carson, who starred for Southern Regional and later for Penn State, announced Tuesday on Twitter that he has been signed to the New York Giants practice squad.
The 25-year old Carson was signed by the Arizona Cardinals as a undrafted free agent in May of 2014 and spent the 2014 season with the Cardinals. Arizona released Carson on August 31, and the former Rams standout had been looking to land back with an NFL team since.
Carson saw time as a true freshman for the Nittany Lions before grabbing a starting job as a sophomore. He started 36 career games at middle linebacker and made 261 career tackles. At Southern, Carson helped the Rams reach the South Jersey Group IV title game in 2008, the first sectional championship appearance for the program. He was outstanding in an epic 14-13 semifinal win over Cherokee that season and was a first-team All-State linebacker.
Also a fantastic high school wrestler, Carson was a three-time state finalist and won the 2009 state championship at 215 pounds. He was also a three-time Region VI champion and a four-time District 24 champion. His 135 career wins are second all-time in Southern history behind three-time state champion Frank Molinaro, who went on to win an NCAA national title at Penn State.
