The arc of the program is bending towards progress, and it’s not hard to see.
Running back by day, memelord by night. Tre Solomon is a football star, an OUP squirrel catcher, and so much more.
Following the graduation of quarterback Alek Torgersen — a two-time first-team All-Ivy selection and Penn’s all-time leader in touchdown passes — the Quakers, for the first time in coach Ray Priore's tenure, have faced an offseason of uncertainty behind center.
Anyone who has spent time around our team over the past two years has heard that word. But to us, it is more than a word. It is what we believe in. It is what drives us. It is what takes more than 100 players and over 20 staff members from so many different backgrounds and bands us together for a four-month journey each fall.
Priore, who spent 28 years as an assistant at Penn before taking over when Al Bagnoli retired after the 2014 season, has joined an exclusive club and will try again to match what became Crouthamel’s three championships in his first three seasons of head coaching.
Watson, the senior receiver out of Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, is more than just a cookie cutter wideout. He’s a playmaker and an offensive weapon who can get the job done in a variety of roles.
Football is back at Franklin Field.
In a span of only a couple of days, former Quaker star Alek Torgersen’s NFL dreams were dashed, and — just as suddenly — resurrected.
With fall athletics underway, many Penn teams will be vying for Ivy League and even national glory. Which team has the best chances of claiming or defending a trophy? Three of the Daily Pennsylvanian sports editors talked it out.
We’ve established that the Quakers can be dangerous when labeled an underdog. So following that logic, the poll did them a favor by making them one again in 2017.

In the recently released Ivy League Preseason Football Poll, media from around the Ancient Eight predicted the final standings for the upcoming season. The results: Princeton and Harvard tied for first, with Penn coming in a close third.
Former Penn football quarterback Alek Torgersen saw his first NFL action on August 10, stepping in under center for the Atlanta Falcons in a preseason Thursday night game against the Miami Dolphins.
Rising junior and defending first team All-Ivy cornerback Mason Williams led the Ancient Eight with six interceptions in a breakout sophomore season, but the rising star is taking his talents to the ACC.
Lights! Camera! Penn football?
After it’s second straight shared Ivy League championship in 2016, Penn football will once again be in the spotlight in 2017 with nine of the team’s games scheduled to be televised.
But while there aren’t many questions regarding who will take the field when the 2017 season rolls around, it’s no secret that one uncertainty still hangs over the squad, one that by and large may determine whether Penn can turn its three-peat dreams into a reality — who’s going to be calling the shots on offense?
Penn football, women’s soccer, and field hockey all recently released their fall 2017 schedules. The Quakers are looking forward to a competitive and successful season across the athletics department.
After one year at Penn, quarterback Michael Collins has announced his transfer to FBS Texas Christian University. As the heir apparent to Torgersen, Collins was expected to take the reins behind center in the program’s quest for a third straight Ivy Championship. Instead, he heads to Fort Worth to join an already crowded quarterback room.
While finals were ending and seniors were preparing for their last goodbyes at graduation, the Penn football team began a new era by announcing the incoming class of 2021.
Many expected Torgersen to be drafted, at least in the last round on Saturday, but the senior quarterback had to watch on as all 253 picks were revealed without his name in them.
