Whatever a Penn State men's basketball Mount Rushmore looks like, Newbill will be on it forever.
I'll play. Though I know I shouldn't bother.
Mt Rushmore has four faces on it. The first 3 PSU basketball players that belong on a national monument are easy:
1. Jesse Arnelle: Final Four, Record setter, champion for civil rights
2. John Amaechi: Great player, great student, and wonderful champion for gay rights
3. Joe Crispin: Sweet 16, Amazing 3pt percentage
The fourth is tougher for me. For me candidates would be Calvin Booth, Talor Battle, Tim Frazier, DJ Newbil, and Jamelle Cornley.
Jamelle may not have the pedigree of the others, but the way he fought and clawed after hurting his shoulder to help that team win the NIT was amazing. Calvin Booth and his shot blocking was the player that got me excited about PSU basketball when I was growing up in Bellefonte. He's also the only one of the above I've had a beer with. Talor, Tim, and DJ were all leaders of teams that depended on them to play 40 minutes every night for PSU to have a chance.
I think when it comes down to it, I'd pick Calvin Booth as the fourth face on the monument.
