Penn State Football Lettermen Sean Lee & Brad Caldwell To Serve As Honorary Captains Against Michigan

Penn State football lettermen Sean Lee and Brad “Spider” Caldwell will serve as honorary captains for the Nittany Lions’ game against Michigan, James Franklin announced Monday.

Lee stands as one of Penn State’s most decorated members of “Linebacker U.” He spent four years playing for the Nittany Lions from 2005-09, and over the course of his collegiate career, Lee totaled 324 total tackles, 10 sacks, three forced fumbles, and three interceptions. When he was sidelined with an injury for the 2008 season, he was elected an honorary team captain and was made a full team captain when he returned for his final year in 2009.

Lee went on to have a decorated NFL career as a star with the Dallas Cowboys. He was selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Dallas and spent each year of his career from 2010-20 with the Cowboys. In Dallas, Lee played in 118 games, recording 804 total tackles, four sacks, 10 interceptions, two forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries. He was named First Team All-Pro in 2016 and took trips to the Pro Bowl in 2015 and 2016.

Caldwell never played a snap for the Nittany Lions, but he was around the team for decades. He began working with Penn State in 1983 as a student equipment manager, and after his graduation from Penn State in 1986, earned a full-time position in 1987. From 2000-14, Caldwell was Penn State’s director of equipment operations. After finishing his time leading equipment operations, Caldwell moved to the Club and Suites Office in Beaver Stadium, where he coordinated efforts with special events, as well as field and stadium management.

Penn State is set to take on Michigan at noon on Saturday, November 11, at Beaver Stadium. The game will be broadcast on FOX.
