UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -
Penn State student-athletes are taught to practice success with honor, taking pride in their education, athleticism and their university as a whole.
The support that these students receive year in and year out is continuously growing, coming from numerous fan bases, university funded groups and community members from near and far.
In particular, these athletes take time every year to thank one very important group: The Nittany Lion Club.
The Nittany Lion Club is a group unlike any other in Happy Valley, supporting more than 800 student athletes in all 31 sports that are offered at Penn State. Members of this recognized club pledge gifts and donations that serve as grant-in-aid for scholarships for the Intercollegiate Athletic Program at Penn State.
On September 24, more than 35 student-athletes ventured out into the parking lots full of tailgaters prior to the start of the Penn State vs. Eastern Michigan football game to give thanks to several of these Nittany Lion Club members.
Take a look at an insider video of this year's Thank-a-Thon and follow a few familiar Penn State student-athletes on their walk around Beaver Stadium to just say, "Thanks."
