Former Penn State tight end Matt Lehman will be starting a new career in NASCAR, not the NFL. According to PennLive.com’s Greg Pickel, the former Penn State tight end who played in 2012, and 2013 has passed his dream of playing in the NFL to join the Hendrick Motorsports developmental pit crew team.
“I have been granted again another opportunity in professional sports,” Lehman said on Facebook. “One I never imagined: NASCAR! Shortly my wife and I will be relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina, as I will be joining Hendrick Motorsports Developmental Pit Crew Team.
“Letting go of a dream to play in the NFL is difficult, but I’m excited to pursue a new one.”
