[Photo Story] Kids Showcase Skills At Athlete Hour

THON is in full effect and everyone at Penn State, particularly its athletes, is involved in an effort to cure childhood cancer.

A few members of the Penn State football team, as well as other athletic programs, took their support of THON to the Multisport Complex Saturday afternoon.

Five-star quarterback Drew Allar (No. 15) and as well as a few others from Penn State’s highly touted 2022 recruiting class sign autographs for a young fan during athlete hour.

Several Penn State football players including class of 2022 wide receiver Omari Evans (No. 18) play a game of four square.

Athlete hour turned into cardio hour with the football team, as a young fan does a handstand along with a few football players.

The women’s field hockey team came out to the multisport complex to share some of their skills with a young fan as well as a few handstands themselves.

The fencing team also showed up to the multisport complex on Saturday for some foam sword fighting, as they joined the effort to fight childhood cancer.

The cornhole boards were out for the kids to enjoy one of State College’s favorite tailgating games.

It wouldn’t be a THON event without one of the great symbols of Penn State, would it be? Of course the Nittany Lion was out to give out a few of his world-famous hugs, all for a good cause.

Mini nets and hula hoops gave many young fans a chance to hang out and score some goals with the Penn State women’s soccer team.
