It’s Alabama All Over Again: PSU Sportsmanship Team is Looking for Fan Ambassadors

When Alabama came to Happy Valley last fall, there was much ado about respecting the visitors and fans that came with them. While it was sightly overboard, the intentions were of good nature. However, anyone who has ever watched a game from the student section knows that not everyone represents Dear Ole’ State with the pride and class that they should.

But PRIDE, the Penn State Sportsmanship Team, now wants to change that. PRIDE intends to build a year round program that welcomes all athletic fans from opposing schools, and they’ll tell you all about it today at the HUB, where they’ll have an information table set-up from 11-2.

Really don’t think you can grin and bear greeting visiting fans before home games? Maybe the opportunity for a free football ticket, a t-shirt, and a bag will sway you. If not, there’s always everyone’s favorite: a prize wheel.

Registration to a be a Fan Ambassador is open now and runs up until this Friday at 5 p.m.
