The video, filled with images from one of the most emotional weeks in PSU history, has reached 23,250 views on Youtube.

Onward State sat down with both of them to discuss the song.

Legacy Remembered at Quigley Tournament

A common theme across campus this week has been how the impact of one man can last far beyond his passing. This weekend at the Jon Quigley Memorial Water Polo Tournament, Penn State's men's and women's club water polo teams proudly celebrated the impact made by a friend and teammate.
