Penn State Student-Athletes Unite In Viral TikTok Trend

Now more than ever before, sports fans are missing their favorite Penn State student-athletes. However, even though live sports are on a pause, many fans have found new ways to still watch their beloved Nittany Lions, especially through TikTok.

In a series of viral videos created by Lady Lions forward Anna Camden, various Penn State student-athletes took part in the #PoseChallenge to replicate action shots taken on the field, court, track, and ice.

In the first video, Camden is joined alongside other athletes such as Jamari Wheeler, Jordan Stout, Makenna Marisa, and noted TikTok Stars Roman Bravo-Young and Will Levis. The second clip also includes Camden as well as Grant Ament, Kenny Johnson, and Brittany Dolan, among others.

So far, both posts have amassed a total of more than 1.5 million views and racked up more than 215,000 likes. It’s pretty clear that folks are eager to support their Nittany Lions both on and off the field.

Although other athletes from Michigan, Illinois, and Pitt have created their own #PoseChallenge submissions, the Nittany Lions’ collab has proven to be among the most popular. Although Penn State loves to “dominate the state,” it’s doing pretty well on TikTok, too.
