Penn State knew it was getting one of the state’s top players when Lamont Wade committed to the Nittany Lions. Now there’s an award — and a title — to prove it.
Wade, a 4-star cornerback and Penn State signee, was named Mr. Football PA on Saturday night. Wade, who played for Clairton, won the award for the state’s 1A-3A classes.

Wade is already in classes this spring at Penn State as an early enrollee.
The 5-foot-9 corner was ranked as the No. 46 player in the 2017 class and the second-best recruit in Pennsylvania. Only Georgia signee D’Andre Swift was ranked higher in the state. Swift, a Philadelphia running back, was named Mr. Football PA for the 4A-6A classes.
Wade has also gained some national attention lately. He was part of an “Outside the Lines” story about local football on ESPN last week.
