Former Penn State Football Stars To Participate In ‘Movement For The Movement’ Event

Several former Penn State football stars will join forces this weekend for an online event and conversation supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

Trace McSorley, Jason Cabinda, Saeed Blacknall, Juwan Johnson, and Grant Haley will take part in a two-hour livestream called “Movement for the Movement” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 26.

The Nittany Lions will first join an hour-long panel discussion alongside fellow Penn Stater and Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Hayley Simpson. It will be hosted by former Penn State student Keith Oliphant. The discussion hopes to bring awareness to “racial inequalities plaguing our nation and educating one another to bring about tangible change in our communities.”

The dialogue will be followed by an hour-long workout session with several other professional athletes. It’ll consist of many different options for workouts, and will be “suitable for all ages.”

Aside from former players, head football coach James Franklin will also take part in the event. Other guests and panelists will be revealed throughout this week.
