Penn State had one special member on the sidelines for the impressive Cotton Bowl win.

During the trip to the Cotton Bowl, the Nittany Lions made the rounds to a local children’s hospital over the holidays. One of those kids was Grant Henderson, a special 13-year-old who has definitely been through a lot.
