Amongst attempting to deal with one of the worst scandals in college sports history, the Pennsylvania State University football program has decided to make minor changes to their appearance. On Wednesday, the program announced that they would be adding a blue ribbon to each uniform in support of the victims in the child abuse case. In addition, for the first time in the team’s history, they will be adding the players’ last names to the back of their uniforms.
“The Penn State community stands with all the victims of child abuse, “ explained Acting Athletic Director, David Joyner. “Coach Bill O’Brien and his football team made it clear they want to support victims and bring more awareness to the issue, which affects so many.”
The decision to include players’ names on the uniform was a unanimous choice by the team’s players. The team explained that the addition of last names would allow for the team to hold each other accountable to uphold the traditions and values of PSU football. The new Nittany Lions jerseys will appear in the teams’ season opener against Ohio on September 1st.
