Nittany Lions Visit 9/11 Memorial

Penn State's first official appearance for the Pinstripe Bowl had special meaning for head coach James Franklin and the program.

NEW YORK — More than 120 Penn State football players visited the 9/11 Memorial here Tuesday morning, and they were joined by the team's coaching and support staffs.

It marked the Nittany Lions' first official event in conjunction with their Dec. 27 Pinstripe Bowl appearance against Boston College in Yankee Stadium. And it held special meaning.

While on the visit, PSU coach James Franklin paid tribute to Martin Worley, a 9/11 victim who played college football with Franklin at East Stroudsburg University.

The Lions also took a moment to remember former PSU kicker Patrick Dwyer, another 9/11 victim.

You can check out some video of the visit — supplied by Penn State Athletics — above.
