Penn State safety Marcus Allen and his Nittany Lions teammates were in a great mood after a 34-27 win against Temple on Saturday.
Allen, a junior safety, led a dance party in the locker room afterward. After he showed off his moves, Allen was joined by a very special guest, Josiah Viera. Viera, 12, suffers from Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, which causes premature aging.
Viera has been welcomed with open arms by the Penn State program. Players and coaches were happy to see him join the celebration with Allen.

Viera, whose hometown is Hegins, Pa., was honored by State College’s minor league baseball team, the Spikes, with his own bobblehead earlier this year.
He got to spend a lot of time with the Penn State program on Saturday, including a trip into Beaver Stadium on the shoulders of head coach James Franklin.
