Crowd celebrates Penn football being reinstated
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - As we have reported, the temporary suspension was announced Saturday morning after a player tested positive for COVID-19 Thursday night.
And yesterday, it was announced that practices are back on.
The players will have practices the rest of this week with a scrimmage Friday night.
According to an email from the Penn Football Moms Club Athletics, the public is not allowed at the scrimmage.
“The board and administration are totally supportive of the football program, and we encourage people to come out, if they can because we have limited seating, enjoy a game,” said PHM Superintendent Jerry Thacker.
