Steelers tight end Jesse James and Eagles offensive guard and Super Bowl champion Stefen Wisniewski made a surprise appearance in the Bryce Jordan Center on Saturday night as captains of the annual THON Pep Rally.

The former Penn State football players led several Eagles and Steelers chants alongside athletic director Sandy Barbour. The two were then declared captains of the two Pep Rally teams.

Women’s volleyball, Men’s soccer, women’s fencing, men’s tennis, women’s rugby, men’s lacrosse, field hockey, men’s golf and women’s gymnastics made up James’s West team. Wisniewski’s East team was composed of football, women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, men’s fencing, women’s soccer, men’s swimming and diving, women’s ice hockey and men’s gymnastics.

The pair watched from off-stage as their teams competed to win best performance of the annual event.

James was a fifth-round draft pick in 2015, while Wisniewski was a second-round pick in 2011.

Detroit Lions defensive end Anthony Zettel, a sixth-round pick in 2016, was also in attendance.
