Jack Tumen, a Penn State student, is producing “Sanctioned” to tell the story of the spirit and resilience of Penn State in the face of historic NCAA sanctions.
Those following the story know how it has played out. The NCAA repealed its sanctions and in the process restored its recognition of Joe Paterno’s historic 409 coaching victories. But the lives of Penn Staters and especially those on the football team were deeply impacted by those sanctions. And for those students and players, the NCAA’s rollback of the sanctions will always be more symbolic. We only live once.
Sanctioned will tell the remarkable stories of a remarkable period in the life of Penn State and an iconic Pennsylvania town. They’re only ~$2,500 away from reaching their Kickstarter goal with 10 days left. They’re working on an achievable goal and doing it with an extremely modest budget.
