State College Spikes, Limitless To Host Sean Clifford ‘Retirement Party’ July 15

Someone put “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” in the queue. Sean Clifford, Penn State football’s sixth-year quarterback, is officially heading into retirement.

The State College Spikes, along with Limitless NIL and Lion Country Kia, will host a “retirement party” to celebrate Clifford’s Penn State illustrious career at 6:35 p.m. on Saturday, July 15, at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, during the team’s ballgame against the Frederick Keys.

The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a free Clifford bobblehead as well as a chance to receive a copy of the Penn State football 1923 team photo, which depicts “just how long Sean Clifford has been a part of our lives.”

The Spikes will present Clifford with several age-appropriate gifts including a rocking chair, a one-way “Snowbird” ticket to Florida, and a year’s supply of adult diapers. One fortunate fan at the ballgame will also go home with the same gifts as Grandpa Cliff. All fans can enter a raffle to win an ultimate pickleball set, too.

“All of us at the Spikes have watched Sean Clifford work his magic on the field for quite a long time, and we are honored to welcome him to Medlar Field to celebrate his career with us,” said Spikes President and General Manager Scott Walker in a release. “We are looking forward to giving Sean the sendoff he deserves at the ripe old age of 25, and we hope that in the end, our fans will say we rose to the occasion.”

And like any good retirement party, fans can participate in a crowd-wide serenade of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” and sign a “Happy Retirement Card” for Clifford.

Clifford will be available to meet, greet, and sign autographs with those in attendance during the Spikes’ game.

Folks can purchase Spikes season tickets here, and individual-game tickets will become available closer to July 15.
