Twelve Stops Announced For 2015 Coaches Caravan

By Sara Civian

James Franklin will embark on his second Penn State Coaches Caravan, from May 5-7 and 19-21. He will continue to “Dominate the State(s),” with eight events in Pennsylvania, and stops in Baltimore, New York City, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey, according to a release.

Other Penn State head coaches are scheduled to join Franklin on the fourth-ever tour, sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lion Club. The events feature speeches from the coaches, a meet-and-greet, and opportunities for students to ask questions about Penn State athletics. Other Penn State football coaches may attend some stops as well.

“I really enjoyed meeting so many Penn Staters during the Coaches Caravan last year and am looking forward to traveling around Pennsylvania and surrounding states again this spring,” Franklin said in the release. “The pride and passion for Penn State, the football program and all our teams is one of the reasons why Penn State so special. It’s going to be great spending time with the other coaches and visiting with our loyal alumni and fans throughout the region.”

The Coaches Caravan, customized by Fullington Tours, will depart from State College on May 5. Here is the full schedule, with locations to be announced at a later date:

May 5: Harrisburg (Lunch) and Lancaster (Evening)

May 6: Washington, D.C. (Lunch) and Baltimore (Evening)

May 7: Altoona (Lunch) and Pittsburgh (Evening)

May 19: Philadelphia (Lunch) and Bucks County (Evening)

May 20: New York City (Lunch) and Northern New Jersey (Evening)

May 21: Lehigh Valley (Lunch) and Wilkes-Barre (Evening)

Penn State Alumni Association and Nittany Lion Club members will be able to register in March, with general registration to follow. More details on the other Penn State coaches participating, locations, and registration information will be available shortly.
