PSU News from National Signing Day!

New head football coach James Franklin signs team recruits during "The Signature Event" at the Bryce Jordan Center!

 

by Corrin Binford - February 13, 2014

Head Coach James Franklin has started a new tradition at Penn State in honor of National Letter of Intent Day. A day that he says is like a holiday for him. Coach Franklin hosted “The Signature Event” to celebrate this year’s recruiting class in the Bryce Jordan Center. The day began with a press conference to discuss the future of Penn State football. Coach Franklin said the recruiting class consists of not only talented young men, but men that will make the school proud both on and off the field.

The event began with numerous performances from the Blue Band, twirlers, Lionettes and cheerleaders. Joshua Johnson, a student who has become famous for tap dancing in the New York City subways to raise money for his tuition, roused the crowd along with students Brittany Hicks and Chris Carmody who performed their original song titled “Diamonds In The Air” in honor of the upcoming THON Dance Marathon.

Former Penn State football star, Lavar Arrington, sat down with Coach Franklin and introduced all 25 members of this year’s recruiting class.
