MISHAWAKA – When Penn senior Matt Kominkiewicz saw his best friend, John Ohlson, go down in the Kingsmen's second football game of the season, he assumed it was a bone bruise and that Ohlson would be back in quickly.

Unfortunately, Ohlson's injury was much worse,  a torn ACL and MCL in his knee ending his senior season early.
