Chris Hogan Donates 100 Student Tickets For Penn State Lacrosse’s Final Four Appearance

Former Penn State men’s lacrosse star and current NFL wide receiver Chris Hogan has donated 100 student tickets for the Nittany Lions’ first appearance in the Final Four along with his wife, Ashley.

The first 100 students to fill out this form will get a free ticket to Penn State’s contest against Yale, which is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, May 25 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Tickets for Saturday’s game are on sale now. Seats in section 117 and 118, which were designated for Penn State fans, have nearly sold out, but there are still plenty of tickets available in neighboring sections. Remaining tickets available for the game range in price from $20 to $90.

Chris Hogan is perhaps the most well-known former Penn State lacrosse player in program history, but not because of anything he did on the lacrosse field. In 2010, Hogan transferred to Monmouth and played wide receiver for their football team, and he spent time with four different NFL teams before joining the New England Patriots in 2016. He won two Super Bowls in three years with the organization before signing with the Carolina Panthers as a free agent this offseason.

Hogan has stayed connected with Penn State lacrosse quite a bit since leaving Happy Valley. He attended the team’s game regular season finale against Rutgers on April 27 and even brushed shoulders with James Franklin while he was there.
