Beaver Stadium Debuts S-Zone Banner Honoring Seniors, Recent Grads

Penn State football unveiled a new S-Zone banner Friday morning that honors the names of students from the Class of 2020 and 2021.

The student section’s new addition will make its official gameday debut this weekend against No. 3 Ohio State.

Although the names are tough to see at first glance, hundreds of tiny signatures appear when taking a closer look.

Earlier this month, students from the Class of 2020 and 2021 submitted their names to be featured on the banner. Seniors received emails to add their names, while the Class of 2020 automatically had its names included.

This idea was a group effort made in part by the Penn State Alumni Association along with the Lion Ambassadors and the Blue & White Society to honor Penn State seniors and recent graduates who are missing out on their final football season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Current seniors haven’t been able to catch a break since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. From missing out on their last football season to finding out that the spring semester will operate in hybrid-style learning without a spring break, they could use a bit of good news this year!
