Otero a Nittany Lion

Five-star senior Oliver Otero has been a major contributor to high school championship teams in two states. As a freshman in Winston-Salem, Otero competed for the Reynolds Demons when they won the 2012 North Carolina state crown - and, after moving to Coconut Grove, Fla., he helped the Coral Gables Senior HS Cavaliers win a championship in Florida. Otero will bring that track record to State College, Pa., next year when he competes for the Penn State Nittany Lions. Story
