Chad Powers ‘Think Fast Run Fast’ T-Shirts Can be won Saturday

For a fake person, Chad Powers has impacted Penn State.

In case you haven’t seen the video by now, “Powers” was a 41-year-old walk-on who tried out for Penn State’s football team last month.

With his “think fast run fast” motto, “Powers” had a positive attitude going into the tryout

What he didn’t have was any remaining college eligibility.

The truth is, he played quarterback at the Ole Miss in the early 2000s and ended up winning some games with the New York Giants after that.

For those who haven’t figured it out by now, “Powers” is actually Eli Manning.

Although the person isn’t real, the stunt’s popularity certainly is.

Manning’s video was part of his visit to Penn State that also featured the former Giant telling punter Barney Amor that he’d been offered a scholarship.

Penn State was one of “Eli’s Places,” which is a college-themed TV show streaming on ESPN+.

The Chad Powers video has gone viral since it hit the internet earlier this week, and now, there are T-shirts.

The shirts, which feature Powers’ “think fast run fast” catchphrase— one he said repeatedly while he ran his 40-yard dash in 5.49 seconds— can be won by any fan that can run faster than that.

Fans interested in winning a shirt can head to Penn State’s baseball stadium, Medlar Field, Saturday morning from 10 to 11 before Penn State’s football game with Central Michigan that’s set to kick off at noon.
