Blue-White Info: Roster Released, Team to Wear Special Jerseys

Blue_White_Jerseys_2014

While Penn State’s iconic jerseys have undergone small changes throughout the years, they’ve typically stayed the same: black shoes, blue jerseys, and pretty much nothing else.¬†But for the Blue-White game only, Penn State will wear special jerseys that will include an Uplifting Athletes patch on each of them.

Last year, the team raised a record $140,000 for Uplifting Athletes, a charity started by former Penn State player Scott Shirley, and the Nittany Lions will look to break that record again this year at their annual Lift For Life, which will take place during the weekend of July 11-13. The special game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, with all proceeds going to Uplifting Athletes.

The program also released the rosters for the Blue-White game, with the team and coaching staff split in half.

The offensive line, due to depth issues, will wear special gray uniforms that will allow them to play on both teams if needed. The specialists will also wear the gray jerseys.
