Aldan is new home of Eagles Pro Bowl fullback Owen Schmitt

Eagles Pro Bowl fullback Owen Schmitt has decide to settle down in Aldan, Delaware County.

And who can blame him?

Aldan is a cool community about 15 minutes from work at One NovaCare Way - in traffic, and only a gulp of coffee from the Daily Times.

It's also real close to Springfield, where Phil Plank, one of Schmitt's best friends, University of West Virginia teammate Phil Plank, is a resident.

And of course, former Monsignor Bonner standout and fellow Mountaineers teammate Anthony Becht still has family in Drexel Hill.

Scmitt stepped in and performed at a star level with the Eagles despite his late arrival after getting released by the Seahawks.

Schmitt made the most of the door that opened when fullback Leonard Weaver, who was coming off a Pro Bowl season, tore ligaments in a knee. Weaver recently underwent another surgery on the knee and his status for next season is questionable.
