On This Day In Penn State History

July 18, 1918

Lt. Levi Lamb, a lineman and three year letter winner on the teams of 1912-1914, is killed near Soissons, France, while leading his army platoon against a German stronghold. He is one of two former players to die in World War I along with 1912 teammate Red Bebout who is killed on a French battlefield on September 29, 1918.

In 1952 Penn State's first student athlete scholarship fund was founded by the Lion's Paw Alumni Association. The endowment was named the Levi Lamb Fund in his honor and still exists to this day.
