Michael McGlinchey OPC '13, with his parents, Jan and Mike, flew to San Francisco this morning so Mike could sign his new contract with the 49ers! McGlinchey was drafted 9th in the 2018 NFL draft last night.

He stayed close to home—pictured above with some OPCs at Giuseppe's in Richboro—to receive the much-anticipated call.

The crowd of 100+ relatives, Penn Charter coaches and classmates, and Notre Dame friends fell silent when McGlinchey's cell rang. And erupted with a roar when he hung up.

Thanks to Joe Sankey OPC '11 for video of the call, the reaction, and the hat wearing. Note: Covering all the bases (pardon the bad pun), the NFL sent 32 hats in advance of the draft, one for each NFL team.

And congratulations to Big Mike! #pcproud
