Dallastown grad Kline excels in classroom
Dallastown High School graduate Ben Kline is apparently doing more than
studying his playbook at Penn State.
Kline, a redshirt freshman linebacker for the Nittany Lions, earned a 3.94
grade-point average during the spring semester and brought a 3.92 cumulative
GPA in the summer academic sessions. He was named to the school’s Dean’s List
and is listed on PSU’s second team in a recently released depth chart.
Overall, the Penn State football team had 34 squad members earning at least
a 3.0 GPA, while 15 earned Dean’s List recognition by posting a 3.5 GPA or higher
this past semester. That brings to 37 the total number of PSU football
student-athletes with a cumulative 3.0 or higher GPA through the spring
semester. Thirty-six of the 37 return for the 2012 fall semester.
