CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - Nittany Lions senior safety Malcolm Willis took the blow of the sanctions announcement just like everyone else around him did a year ago.  However something else happened that day, that changed him in a positive way for the rest of his life.

His girlfriend gave birth to a baby girl named Monroe. 

Monroe celebrated her 1st birthday on Tuesday, and at the first day of the Big Ten Football Media Days on Wednesday, Willis talked about just how much his family meant to him throughout this past year.
