Youngstown State football fans can get a great chance to get to know the members of the 2018 YSU football team at the "Meet the Penguins" special event on Saturday, August 4 at Stambaugh Stadium.
The free event is set for 1:30-3 p.m. where fans can get autographs, photos and interact with the members of the 2018 Penguins. The squad will take its 2018 team photo during the event.
Parking is free in the Hollywood Gaming/Penguin Club M-70 Tailgate Lot across from Stambaugh Stadium.
Fans can try on a YSU uniform, clock their 40-yard dash time, kick field goals and toss footballs around with the Penguins. Pete the Penguin and members of the YSU spirit squad will also be in attendance.
Additionally, the first 100 fans in attendance will receive a free YSU Derek Rivers/Avery Moss dual bobblehead. Both Rivers and Moss were selected in the NFL Draft after helping lead the Penguins to the National Championship Game during the 2016 campaign.
