"Go Penn!"
Score 4.0 / 5

My daughter is a Penn State graduate so driving back through the streets past the college and the stadium just brought back a flood of memories. As a teenager I had hoped to play football for Penn State but my knees didn't cooperate by the time I was a senior in high school. Decades later my daughter became the Nittany Lion that I dreamed of being. So we are a Penn State family even though we live in New York.
