Ali Krieger and Kerry McCoy Trade Places

September 23, 2015 at 1:26 pm 3 comments

Ali Krieger ’07 and Kerry McCoy ’97 are two of the finest athletes that Penn State has ever produced. The pair had never crossed paths until earlier this year, when Krieger, who plays professionally in Maryland and is (of course) a recent World Cup winner, visited former Olympian McCoy at the University of Maryland (where he’s now the head wrestling coach) for a video series called “The Keystone Connection.” In it, McCoy teaches Krieger some wrestling moves, while Krieger coaches up McCoy on the pitch. The duo also discuss their careers, both as collegiate athletes and as competitors who have gone on to represent the United States at the international level.

    Ali Krieger is from Prince William Virginia not Maryland…

    Whoops, we meant to say that she plays professionally in Maryland. Great catch, fixed now.
