UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Just before 11:30 a.m. on Sunday Penn State Football head coach James Franklin dropped by the Bryce Jordan Center for a quick moment on the stage. Kicking off the final four hours of the event, Franklin brought daughters Addison and Shola on stage with Nittany Lion dancer Charlie Shuman.
"What you guys are doing is unbelievable, 46 hours dancing straight to make a difference in families and children's lives and to beat pediatric cancer is unbelievable," Franklin said. "I'm so proud of you guys."
Franklin also gave a special shoutout to Shuman, who will have completed the 46 hour dance marathon in just a few short hours.
"Your commitment to sacrifice and serve others is what THON is all about and why we're so proud to be a part of this Penn State community."
Shola and Addison closed out the appearance leading the packed BJC in a "We Are" chant.
