Football Fantasy Camp To Be Featured Saturday on Big Ten Network Pre-Game Show
Sept. 16, 2009
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; - The Penn State Football Fantasy Camp will be featured Saturday, Sept. 19 on Big Ten Football Saturday: Pre-Game Show on the Big Ten Network.
The program begins at 10:30 a.m and will be followed at 12:00 p.m. by the Penn State-Temple game from Beaver Stadium. Rick Pizzo and former Nittany Lion All-American Kyle Brady are the remote hosts for Big Ten Football Saturday: Pre-Game Show.
Big Ten Network anchor Mike Hall was among the participants at the fourth annual camp, held in June on the University Park campus. Hall participated in all the practices and meetings for the four-day camp, which culminated in a game in Beaver Stadium that ended in a 32-32 tie. Several Penn State football coaches worked the camp, along with former players Blair Thomas, Kenny Jackson and Rick Sayles.
"I was delighted to participate in the Penn State Football Fantasy Camp," Hall said. "It was impressive how open the coaches were with their time. I also walked away with a lot more respect for quarterbacks, the position I played, than I ever had before. And I realized that even though I'm still in my 20s... a weekend playing football at Penn State made me feel like I need a new body."
The first half of Hall's feature on the Penn State Football Fantasy Camp can be found by going to:
The Temple game as been designated Favorite Jersey Day and Nittany Lion fans attending the contest are encouraged to wear their favorite all-time Penn State jersey. There will be opportunities for fans to have photos taken with cutouts of former Nittany Lion greats on Curtin Road near Beaver Stadium. A special Top 10 video countdown of the fans' most popular jerseys of the day (as counted upon entry to the stadium) will occur at halftime.
The Nittany Lions' contest with the Owls will re-air Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 20 at 3:00 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
