Word out of State College today is that Penn State will have a change to their uniforms according to PSU and Penn State Head Coach Bill O’Brien. The 2012 uniforms will include a ribbon to support victims of child abuse. We’ve all read the just absolutely horrible stories of Jerry Sandusky and his acts that he was convicted of. Penn State players are transferring left and right. Joe Paterno passed away. Things aren’t going very well at Penn State University.
Nothing can reverse what happened to those children. Hopefully awareness can be raised to prevent these heinous acts.
From the school via Jason Kirk of SBNation.com:
When they take the field at Beaver Stadium for their 126th season, The Pennsylvania State University football team will wear uniforms featuring a blue ribbon to support all victims of child abuse. Also, for the first time, the names of each football player will adorn their jersey in recognition of their resolve and dedication to the team and the University.
