Penn State Football Releases “Why Penn State” Hype Video

Cameron Hart

Penn State football has had some fantastic hype videos in recent years, but the program’s newest “Why Penn State” video just might take the cake.

The video, which runs just over two and a half minutes in length, was tweeted out Tuesday morning, and is sure to get the football-hungry Penn State fanbase excited for what the 2015-16 season holds. The video features interview clips from incoming freshman players and their families about what the Penn State blue and white mean to them, and why they ultimately chose to make Happy Valley their home for the next four years.

Family members and players alike raved about the family atmosphere James Franklin and his program provide, saying how the coaching staff makes Penn State feel like home. Freshman defensive end Kamonte Carter shared that blue and white are much more than colors — they symbolize the history that preceded them, and the legendary players that took the field before them. Freshman defensive back John Reid noted that both the program’s vast history, along with the coaching staff and individuals around them, will help open doors to the NFL as well as outside of football.

Though we still have a few months to wait until the football season arrives, it’s never too early to get excited about Penn State football.
