Shannon Furman is Living the ‘Hard Knocks’ Life
HBO’s Hard Knocks returns tonight, and with Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans playing host, the new season of the NFL’s popular behind-the-scenes series holds special interest for Penn State fans. But the Nittany Lions’ former coach isn’t the only Hard Knocks star with blue-and-white blood lines: Shannon Furman ’03, a producer and director with NFL Films, is the series’ first assistant director.
Furman figures to be busy in Houston for the next month, but as the tweet above shows, she’s all over the football map, including occasionally back at her alma mater.
You can see a trailer for the the new Hard Knocks season here. As for tonight? Here’s hoping OB keeps it clean.
