"It's very exciting for me to head into the Big 10 next year!" exclaims
Richard. "I very much appreciate all the work and help from the Saints
coaching staff and what they have taught me. I really want to step in
next season and make an immediate impact as a freshman. I'd like to help
take the Lions as far as possible as the program enters the first year
of full Division 1 competition! I would really like to thank my friends
and family especially my parents for helping me throughout the whole
"Dylan is a complete
2 way player." says Head Coach Jason McKee. "He is reliable in all
three zones, and I am confident that Dylan will be a welcome addition to
the Nittany Lions next season."
