Blue-White Game Balls To Be Auctioned Off In Support Of Uplifting Athletes

Each year, Penn State football uses its annual Blue-White game to gauge its roster as positional battles wage on. But since 2014, the program’s also used the event as a charitable platform to benefit Penn State’s Uplifting Athletes chapter. It was announced today that game balls will be donated following Saturday’s Blue-White event with all proceeds going toward Uplifting Athletes.

Last year, Penn State auctioned off 20 game-used Blue-White jerseys in support of Uplifting Athletes. Though the jerseys used differ from the team’s classic uniform, individual bids as high as $230 were reported for certain uniforms — namely Christian Hackenberg’s. This year, game balls featuring the Uplifting Athletes logo signed by James Franklin, Joe Moorhead, and Brent Pry will be auctioned off. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Uplifting Athletes.

There’s plenty to watch for tomorrow with plenty of new faces and players vying for starting positions. You can see what our staff feels about the game’s outcome here (hint: it’s unanimous in Penn State’s favor).
