Welcome to the Blog!

For more than 75 years, Penn Staters have relied on The Football Letter for one-of-a-kind perspective on Nittany Lion football. Now, the Alumni Association is proud to introduce The Football Letter Blog, a new and unique destination for year-round coverage of Penn State football.

Longtime editor John Black ’62 will continue writing The Football Letter game stories, as he has since 1976. Here on The Blog, we’ll post additional content, much of which you won’t find anywhere else: exclusive interviews with Penn State coaches and players, behind-the-scenes access, and features on former Nittany Lion greats. We’ll also highlight Alumni Association chapter events and look back at memorable moments from The Football Letter archives.

We welcome you to subscribe to The Blog, and to follow us on Twitter at @PSUFBLetter. We’ll be updating throughout the year, with daily updates during football season, and special content available exclusively for Alumni Association members.

We look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing you at Beaver Stadium this fall.

For the Glory,

Ryan Jones ’95

  1. Is Football Letter still going to be in it’s former format and sent by email on every Tues?. if not I think this is a bad decision — the format has remained since the start by Ridge Riley and continued by John Black and is a piece of Penn State history..

    • Hi Al,
      Yes, The Football Letter you know and love will still be sent out via email on game weeks, and John will continue to write and edit that. This site is simply a chance for us to provide new and additional content that we hope will complement the “original” Football Letter. Thanks for writing.

    • Ridge Riley was GREAT! and John Black is following the tradition!
