Raiders’ Penwell to play football at Defiance



Tanner Penwell, a disruptive defensive tackle at Benjamin Logan, has decided to continue his football career at Defiance College.

Defiance plays at the NCAA Division III level. The Yellow Jackets compete in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference.

“It is a great fit for Tanner with what they offer him academically,” said Cotner. “Their staff really stressed the academic support they provide, and I think that will be a great benefit for Tanner.”
