03/16/13 - 2013 Cal PA Pro Day: California (Pa.) FS Rontez Miles looks like mid-round possibility...Representatives from 13 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at California University of Pennsylvania on March 11, where Rontez Miles - who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine - was the key attraction at a workout held outdoors.
Miles (5-foot-11 7/8, 203 pounds), a free safety, ran the short shuttle in 4.15 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds. Due to windy conditions, Miles opted not to run the 40-yard dash after his agent advised him that he ran well enough in the 40 at the combine (officially 4.62 seconds). Miles is a mid-round pick possibility in the 2013 NFL Draft. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

08/06/12 - Defending PSAC East and overall champion Kutztown has been picked to win the Eastern Division while California and IUP have been chosen as co-favorites to win the PSAC West. This marks the seventh straight season that the Vulcans have been picked as at least a co-favorite in the PSAC West, while IUP is a favorite for the first time since 2003. In the PSAC East, Kutztown, fresh off its first PSAC Championship in school history, is the favorite for the first time in preseason poll history. Their previous best place in a preseason poll was second—done twice. The Golden Bears are coming off not only their first PSAC Championship, but also just their second PSAC East championship in program history. After sharing the title with LIU Post last year, the Golden Bears will be looking for their first-ever outright PSAC East title as they look to repeat as overall conference champions. Kutztown, which also appeared in the NCAA playoffs for the second straight year and for just the second time overall in 2011, will be looking to get back to the “State Game” for just the third time in program history. California, which also appeared in the NCAA playoffs last season for the fifth straight year—which is the fifth-longest current streak in Division II—won at least a share of the Western Division for the seventh straight season in 2011 but lost out on a tiebreaker to Slippery Rock for the right to advance to the PSAC championship game. - Pennsylvania State football
