The Penn State Nittany Lions football program currently resides in the Big Ten conference and has won two National Championships. Known for tradition, Beaver Stadium, and Joe Paterno, the program is a point of pride in the community after the team persevered following harsh NCAA sanctions that eliminated wins and placed scholarship reductions on the program. The program looks to begin a new era when new head coach James Franklin leads the Nittany Lions into the 2014 season.
Penn State’s new Offensive Coordinator Joe Moorhead will be inducted into Fordham University’s Athletic Hall Of Fame. Moorhead was a three-year starter at quarterback as a student, and served as the team’s Head Coach from 2012 to 2015.
Penn State’s Uplifting Athletes chapter raised more than $73,000 during its annual “Lift For Life” event, putting the chapter’s total fundraising efforts at $1.2 million during its 14 years in existence.
