YORK, Pa. — Brandon Short, Penn State Board of Trustees member and former Penn State Nittany Lion and NFL linebacker, will be a part of Penn State York’s 11th annual clay shoot event on Wednesday, May 1, with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. The event takes place at Central Penn Sporting Clays in Wellsville, Pennsylvania.
Participants are invited to take aim and shoot for a day of fun that also benefits Penn State York student-athletes. Money raised will be used to help teams purchase new equipment, experience pre-season training opportunities, and pay for additional travel expenses for post-season play.
Penn State York offers seven intercollegiate sports, baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, golf for women and men, soccer, women’s softball, and women’s volleyball. Teams play in the Penn State University Athletic Association and the United States Collegiate Athletic Association.
The schedule for the day includes clinics for novice shooters, registration, flurry, archery, and lunch. Following the afternoon of shooting, Short will share a few words at the tailgate event. Short will not be signing autographs during this event.
As a courtesy, and for the safety of our shooters, media representatives will not be permitted on the course at any time during the event. A media opportunity is available from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m.

He graduated from Penn State in 1999 with a bachelor of science in marketing and went on to earn his master of business administration from Columbia University in 2010.
