A Legacy of Unity and Excellence

At the heart of Triplett’s lies a story that transcends the boundaries of a typical restaurant, rooted deeply in the spirit of unity and courage symbolized by the iconic chant, "WE ARE PENN STATE." This mantra is not just a rally cry; it's a testament to the legacy of Wally Triplett and his teammates, who together faced the challenges of racial segregation with unwavering solidarity.


Wally Triplett, a 5-foot, 10-inch dynamo, was not just a standout halfback and kick returner for Penn State’s football team; he was a pioneer who, alongside his teammates, embodied the true meaning of "WE ARE PENN STATE." In 1946, faced with the demand from Miami game officials to leave their Black players behind, the Penn State team united to make a stand that would forever echo through history. They chose to skip the game rather than play without their teammates, asserting that the team's unity was inseparable from their identity.


This defining moment was mirrored two years later when invited to the Cotton Bowl, facing similar demands for segregation. Penn State, led by team captain Steve Suhey, once again stood firm with the declaration, "WE ARE PENN STATE," refusing to bow to the pressures of racial discrimination. This unyielding stance against segregation not only marked a pivotal moment in sports history but also set a precedent for inclusivity and unity in the face of adversity.
