Video posted May 1, 2014 in News by Dylan Nelson


Nick Schmidt is a senior at Penn State studying Athletic Training. Nick, like many other Penn State students loves to participate in THON, but Nick does his part in a different way. As a member of the Athletic Training Club, Nick along with other trainers takes different shifts throughout THON weekend to support the dancers. They ice, stretch, and assist the dancers with any pain they might have in their legs, while standing 46 hours for the kids.
