It’s been a long journey ever since I was a little kid. All the hard work, sacrifices, pain, blood, sweat, and tears were meant to happen for a reason. I am blessed to announce that I will be continuing my athletic and academic career at Penn State University!!! Thank you to everyone who has supported and helped me these past 12 years and the people who have been there for me since day one. Especially my parents, my brother, Paul Donahoe, the Horwath family and coach Hall. It’s an honor to be apart of something as special as Penn States legacy and wish to carry on this legacy. We are…. #committed #PSU #blessed
