Former Penn State Football Linebacker Cam Brown Represents THON In NFL’s ‘My Cause My Cleats’ Initiative

New York Giants linebacker and former Penn State football player Cam Brown will represent THON in the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats initiative. My Cause My Cleats brings awareness to causes important to NFL players through the design of their cleats during weeks 13 and 14 of the NFL season.

Players also have the opportunity to raise money for their cause by auctioning off their cleats, and 100% of proceeds are donated to the player’s charities. This is far from the first time that a Penn Stater has used the movement to raise money for THON. Trace McSorley, Nick Scott, Mike Gesicki, Carl Nassib, and others have selected THON in their time in the NFL.

Brown played in 51 games during his Penn State career and recorded 199 total tackles, 99 solo tackles, five sacks, and four forced fumbles.

He was drafted by the New York Giants with the No. 183 pick in the sixth round in 2020 and has been with the team ever since. Brown’s appeared in 55 games and registered 20 tackles over the course of 3.5 seasons.

Many players’ cleats are up for auction now or will be in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes out for this year’s THON-themed kicks.
