The Cutest Penn State Babies & Kids: Part One

Penn State babies and kids are the most adorable and wholesome little fans in Nittany Nation. That’s just a fact.

Last week, we asked you to submit photos of your adorable Penn State babies and kids. Well, folks, you didn’t disappoint and wound up delivering some wholesome content for our blog. The pictures you submitted are beyond adorable.

With nearly 100 quality submissions, we decided to break this story up into a few parts. Without further ado, here’s a very small portion of the cutest Penn State babies and kids:

Mackenzie: Submitted By Addison (Class of 2011) And Krista Root (Class of 2012)

Love for Penn State runs in one-year-old Mackenzie’s blood. Her mom, dad, grandma, aunt, and uncle are all Penn State alums. Not that I’m biased in any way, but let me just say: great name choice!

Lennon: Submitted By Jessica McKeon (Class of 2011)

Four-year-old Lennon is back for his second appearance on the blog! He loves all things Penn State, especially Beaver Stadium and the Arboretum, says his mom.

Cooper, Oliver, & Camden: Submitted By Justin (Class Of 2011) And Ashley Zickar (Class Of 2010)

5-year-old Cooper, 2-year-old Oliver, and 9-month-old Camden all sported Penn State colors and attire to celebrate the first football game of the year. It looks like Camden could be a future Nittany Lion mascot in training!

Charlotte: Submitted By Elizabeth Jacobs

It looks like Penn State cheerleading has a future squad member with 4-year-old Charlotte. Maybe someday down the road, we’ll be seeing her cheer on the sidelines for every game at Beaver Stadium.

Addison: Submitted By Erin Strauss

Add little Addison to the list of future Penn State cheerleaders, too! This picture is from her first Penn State game. At 1 year old, Addison is already mastering the art of cheering for the Nittany Lions and playing cornhole. That’s called range, folks.

Maxwell: Submitted By Jared Glowaski

According to Maxwell’s dad and Penn State alum, Jared, “Maxwell’s middle name, Penn, is a tribute to his family’s favorite football team and fall obsession. He has been around for three games and enjoys this whole winning thing.” This kid gets it.

Ben: Submitted By Ryan (Class of 2012) And Leah Wolf (Class of 2013)

Not only will baby Ben be a Penn State Class of 2043 alum, but he’ll also have some shoes to fill on the men’s volleyball court. His dad, Ryan, was a member of the men’s volleyball team during his time at Penn State. If that isn’t destiny, I don’t know what it is.

Stay tuned until later this week for part two of this adorable series. If you still want to submit your little one, click here.
