The Cutest Penn State Babies & Kids: Part Two

We’re back for another round of the most adorable Penn State babies and kids. From future Nittany Lion mascots to soon-to-be cheerleaders, we couldn’t get enough of some of Nittany Nation’s littlest and most precious fans.

The amount of cuteness in all of the photos you sent couldn’t be confined to one part. Without further ado, here’s part two of (some) of Penn State’s most adorable little fans.

Odin: Submitted By Audry Figueroa (Class Of 2014)

1-year-old Odin is already suiting up to become the next Nittany Lion mascot. I mean, the dedication speaks for itself, folks. Hopefully, Odin is mastering his best Nittany Lion roar.

Olivia: Submitted By Jennifer O’Meara (Class Of 2007)

At 8 months old, baby Olivia is already learning how to navigate the downtown State College bar scene. Maybe someday as a future Penn Stater, she’ll be participating in 55 Days of Cafe or enjoying a Friday night performance from The Corner Brothers.

Daniel, John, Josephine, & Jack: Submitted By Dan (Class Of 2008) & Chantelle (Class Of 2009) Otto

It’s looking like we might have fifth-generation Penn Staters with 4-year-old Daniel, 2-year-old John, and 10-month-olds Josephine and Jack. Both of their parents are alumni, but their mom, Chantelle, is a fourth-generation Penn Stater. Guess it’s true when they say Nittany Nation is a family.

Ellie: Submitted By Matt Crouse

10-month old Ellie is cheering on the Nittany Lions from the same Beaver Stadium seats that have been passed down from her grandparents. Her dad, Matt, said that these seats have been in his family for over 40 years, and now he gets to share his love for Penn State with little Ellie.

Hadley & Hunter: Submitted By Scott Allen (Class Of 1999 & 2006)

4-year old Hadley and her 6-month old brother, Hunter, are all dressed up for the start of football season! Coach Franklin, I think you may have two future players in the making.

Kaius: Submitted By Leticia (Class Of 2017) & Koby Allen (Class Of 2018)

6-month-old Kaius is already a dedicated member of Nittany Nation thanks to his Penn State alum parents, Leticia and Koby. The pennant in the picture used to hang in Kaius’s dad’s dorm room, and his mom won him his own stuffed Nittany Lion at the Homecoming Carnival.

Mac: Submitted By Jeff Martz (Class Of 2012)

Dressing your kid up as a mini Joe Paterno? Check. I think it’s time we start taking gameday outfit advice from 1-year-old Mac. The jacket, rolled-up khakis, and black cleats are all power moves in their own right.

Kyle: Submitted By Matt (Class Of 2008) & Melanie Shaffer (Class Of 2007)

3-year-old Kyle has been coming to Penn State sporting events since he was a year old. His dad, Matt, says that he’s been to a few football games and loves seeing the Nittany Lion (don’t we all?), the team, and watching the Blue Band perform. Matt also says that Kyle loves marching and flipping around his house like the Blue Band drum major. Look out, Ryan Frist — you’ve got some serious competition!

Madelyn & Emersyn: Submitted By Lyndsay Paone

Are we seeing double? Let’s show some love for twins, Madelyn and Emersyn! At 6-months old, they’re already showing their Penn State pride and support for their dad’s alma mater with matching outfits.
