SAVING THE ROAR is the true story about the 2012 Penn State Football Team who rose from the ashes and defined what it means to have "Success With Honor." Fueled by childhood dreams and legacy bloodlines, this team of Iron Lions stayed and fought for something much greater than football. What follows is the triumphant story of the team that restored the roar. Check with us from time to time as we will update this site along with our Facebook with production photos, footage and dates.

I was honored to be invited to attend this amazing documentary of the internal struggle of a band of Penn State football brothers who refused to let the life and legacy of Penn State football be determined by anyone outside of the Lasch building. We all knew in our hearts that these 18-22 year olds were audaciously gifted and strong, but there was more than a speech by Mauti & Zordich holding them together. Everyone who loves Penn State must watch this movie. Every student athlete must watch this movie. Kids need their own profiles of courage. These men showed the next gen what loyalty, strength, faith, courage, hard work and resilience look like in action. Kids need this movie!
