‘Absolutely Heartbreaking’: Penn State Fans React To Journey Brown’s Retirement

Penn State football head coach James Franklin sent shockwaves through the college football community Wednesday night when he revealed star running back Journey Brown must take a permanent step back from football.

Brown, who was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a rare heart condition, in September, hadn’t touched the field at all this season. Now, he may never again.

Over the past month, though, Brown remained an integral leader for Penn State’s locker room, guiding third-string running back Devyn Ford and freshmen Caziah Holmes and Keyvone Lee through a tumultuous season.

Penn State fans quickly took to Twitter to share their thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes for the fan-favorite student-athlete.
