Scranton, PA - A recent local radio show interview highlighted former Lackawanna College football player, Mark Glowinski, who is presently the starting left guard on the Seattle Seahawk football team. The interview not only mentions the significance of Lackawanna College's impact on his life but is also an example of one of coach Mark Duda's team philosophies of always give back to your community when the opportunity arises.

In this case, Glowinski traveled from his professional home in Seattle, Washington to Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania to participate in the Jared Grohowski Foundation Football Camp at Wilkes-Barre's Memorial Stadium. The Jarad Grohowski Foundation was established in 2003 in memory of the untimely death of the G.A.R. football player, and since then it has disbursed more than $62,000 to students, athletes and organizations for scholarships, camp costs and countless other causes.

Glowinski is a graduate of GAR Memorial High School, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. In 2011, he received his associates' degree from Lackawanna after serving as a two-year starter on the Falcons' football. Glowinski then transferred to West Virginia University, where he red shirted his Junior year and then started the last two years as the Mountaineers' right guard. After completing his senior year, he was named to the 2014 All-Big 12 Football Second Team and was the 134 player drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft. He has played with the Seahawks since that draft and established himself as the starting left guard last season.
