Gift-giving Penn State super fan dances at practice, makes GameDay appearance

Penn State fan Zack Williams hand-delivered a sweet gift to DE Torrence Brown following an injury.

Penn State has one gift-giving super fan walking around campus these days. 

After Penn State redshirt junior Torrence Brown sustained a season-ending knee injury, one dedicated fan sought out to lift his spirits after hearing about the injury. 

Zack Williams, who is part of Penn State's LifeLink program, decided to gift Brown with chocolate chip cookies as a pick-me-up after he was carted off the field during the Nittany Lions' game at Georgia State during Week 3. 

According to their website, LifeLink provides State College Area School District special needs students, ages of 18 through 21, a chance to interact with students their age in "an environment that is socially and academically conducive to continued growth."

Brown certainly appreciated the thoughtful gesture and tweeted his gratitude toward one of Penn State's biggest fans. 

Zack's kindness was also recognized by Penn State head coach James Franklin, who invited him to a Nittany Lions practice. During his visit, Zack showed off his cool dance moves and challenged safety Marcus Allen to a battle. 

Zack also showcased his skills on ESPN's College GameDay. 

GameDay traveled to State College this weekend for Penn State's matchup against Michigan.
