Former Nittany Lion soccer player Brett Gravatt, whom we profiled in our Jan./Feb. 2016 issue, appeared on a recent episode of the podcast Let’s Talk with Jacob Wilkins.

This is a quick listen, and it hits on a number of aspects of Gravatt’s life. Among other things, Gravatt and Wilkins ’10 talk about the details behind Gravatt’s injury, adapting to life post-injury, getting involved with Penn State’s Ability Athletics program, and his current role with the Penn State soccer team.

Gravatt also discussed competing in wheelchair racing and his aspirations of making it to this September’s Paralympic Games in Rio. Gravatt is one of four Penn Staters who have qualified for the U.S. Paralympic Track and Field Trials later this month. We’ll keep an eye on them.
