Learn About The Football Biz From Nittany Lions In The NFL

Craving an extra dose of Penn State football before the Blue-White game? Try brushing up on the business of football with a panel featuring a few legendary Nittany Lions.

Former Penn State football stars and current NFL players Adrian Amos, Allen Robinson, and Donovan Smith will return to campus Friday to headline the panel, “From Penn State to the NFL: The Business of Football from the Players’ Perspective.”

The event will be held in the HUB’s Freeman Auditorium at 4:30 p.m.

Amos, Robinson, and Smith will share their experiences and personal stories in a laid-back conversation about the business side of the NFL. The trio will cover topics including concussions and physical risks, free agency and labor issues, race and sport, social responsibility, and the role of professional sports and athletes in society.

If these players can talk about business half as well as they play football, we’re in for a heck of an event, folks.
