Backus has seen action with the PSU 1st XV’s a handful of times in the fall and is preparing for the Collegiate Division 1-A conference schedule this spring.
The off-season indoor trainings include 6am conditionings Monday & Fridays, late night training sessions – sometimes as late as 10pm – and mandatory weight lifting sessions throughout the week.
Penn State prepares for the CPL season with a tour to Las Vegas and the West where they will play 2011 CPL runner-up and perennial powerhouse Brigham Young as well as Arizona State.
The pre-season doesn’t get any easier with matches against Old Blue, a men’s team from New York, and then the regular season opener against University of Delaware.
