Brian O’Neill has been an impact player on the field the last two seasons (2018, 2019) for Penn and now is looking to make an impact serving the Rare Disease Community. Brian participated in the 2018 and 2019 Lift For Life events as part of the Iron Quaker and volunteered to assume a leadership role in the Penn Chapter of Uplifting Athletes. He attended the 2020 and 2021 Leadership Development Conference and is excited to help the UPenn program support the rare disease cause.
A native of New Jersey, Brian started 10 games in 2018 and 2019 at linebacker and in 2019 was a second team All-Ivy selection. He led the Quakers in interceptions in 2019 with three and the last two seasons as a starter has registered more than 110 tackles and 20-plus tackles for a loss. Penn did not have a 2020 season.
