First look at Penn State 2022 football and QB Beau Pribula


Thanks to the 50th annual THON weekend at Penn State, fans got their first unofficial look at the 2022 Penn State football team.

The 46-hour dance marathon has raised more than $13 million for children battling cancer at Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey. In addition to the weekend activities, these families were able to spend a few hours with the Nittany Lions athletes.

Field hockey taught kids how to pass and shoot at a goal. The tennis teams played pickle ball with the families. There was hula hoop, fake fence, cornhole and mini golf.

It was also our first chance to see some of Penn State Football’s early players, including the highly anticipated Governor Mifflin, running back Nick Singleton. He wore the number 10 jersey for the event.

We also got to see Central York quarterback Beau Pribula now in his blue and white number 9 jersey. The high school standout QB had 5,667 yards and 99 touchdowns (combined passing and rushing totals).

While Penn State football doesn’t allow freshmen to speak to the media, second linebacker Curtis Jacobs told us there’s plenty to be excited about for this 2022 team.

“We have a lot of guys coming in who are hungry, and a lot of younger guys who are hungry,” Jacobs said. “It’s a perfect mix when you’re trying to build a team, so we just have to control that hunger. [and] make it work in the right direction.

The Nittany Lions will begin spring training in March and host the annual Blue-White game on April 23.

THON began Friday evening and continued until Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. when the total funds raised by the students were revealed. To date, THON has raised over $200 million for Four Diamonds to pay for childhood cancer treatment and research.
