Nolf, Ogle honored with 2019 McCoy Award
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State students Jason Nolf, a wrestler and kinesiology major, and Emily Ogle, a soccer player and kinesiology major, have been selected as the 2019 recipients of the Ernest B. McCoy Memorial Award.
The McCoy Award is presented annually to one senior student-athlete who has combined successful athletic participation with academic excellence. The award is named for the longtime dean of Penn State’s College of Physical Education, who also served as the University’s athletic director.
No. 1 ranked Nolf is undefeated during this year's wrestling season and looking to win his third-straight NCAA title at 157 pounds and become a four-time All-American. Nolf has been in the NCAA finals in each of his first three seasons and has won the past two NCAA titles, including an impressive title in 2018 after returning from an early-season injury.
Nolf’s collegiate wrestling record is 126-4, with a 5-0 record in the NCAA championships. The 2018-19 wrestling season is not completed, so Nolf's record is subject to change.
Nolf’s accolades off the mat include three-time Academic All-Big Ten, three-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and two-time Academic All-American. His cumulative GPA is 3.72.
