...Fayak, a 1990 graduate of Belle Vernon Area High School who became Penn State's all-time football scoring leader as a placekicker, also recalled sacrifices early in life that paid off in big dividends. His

practiced kicking in "all kinds of weather, day and night."
"I'm sure our neighbors were happy to see me graduate from high school," Fayak
...Fayak, 32, now vice president of sales operations for PDI, a pharmaceutical company in New Jersey, received a degree in English Literature from Penn State and said he has always been a student of history, too.
