Penn State Football: Caravan Set To Kickoff Next Week At Pegula Ice Arena
Penn State's coaching caravan will travel throughout the state and beyond over the next several weeks. But James Franklin and his staff are kicking off the tour right here in State College this Thursday.
"I am excited that the Caravan kickoff event is in State College," Franklin told StateCollege.com. "It all starts here in Happy Valley with the students, the faculty and staff and everyone in the community that have been so supportive from day one. The sense of pride in the University and the State College community is unbelievable and I can't wait to visit with all the alumni, students and fans at Pegula Ice Arena on May 1."
The tour will feature 17 stops over the span of 10 days, starting at the Pegula Ice Arena.
James Franklin won't be the only head coach in attendance though as women's volleyball coach Russ Rose and men's soccer coach Bob Warming will both be in attendance and speaking at the 6 PM event. Penn State football assistant coaches Josh Gattis (receiver), Charles Huff (running back), Brent Pry (linebacker) and Bob Shoop (defensive coordinator) will be in attendance at the reception to meet attendees.
Seats are still available at nearly all of the tour stops including the caravan-opening stop in State College. Registration is underway for the general public at www.alumni.psu.edu/coachescaravan.
