Jeremy Molinaro, a freshman outfielder-pitcher with the Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’ men’s Jeremy Molinarobaseball team, has been honored as the National Player of the Week by the United States Collegiate Athletic Conference (USCAA).

“Jeremy’s performance over the weekend showed a lot of leadership. His hustle on the field was above and beyond and he made two incredible catches in the field. He was a catalyst in our two wins,” said Ray Smitley, Penn State Fayette’s head baseball coach.
