Panini America’s Full-Throttle Thursday at the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere (Gallery)
LOS ANGELES — On Thursday during the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere, Panini America officials once again delivered an action-packed experience from beginning to end, highlighted by some fresh rookie faces in the the Panini America player lounge for autograph signings and executing two major player appearances simultaneously.
While a diligent few stayed back at the host hotel to engage a steady stream of incoming rookies for signing sessions, two separate Panini America teams ventured out across Southern California to pull off two huge events.
One team took Tavon Austin, EJ Manuel, Marcus Lattimore, Denard Robinson and Mike Glennon for a whirlwind media tour that included appearances on ESPN’s SportsCenter, SportsNation, NFL 32, Mint Condition, Sirius XM, Fox Sports Radio and more. Another team made the 40-mile trek to Anaheim with Manti Te’o, DeAndre Hopkins, Robert Woods and Giovani Bernard for an informal Q&A and autograph session at the GTS Distribution open house.
It made for another spectacular day with a spectacular class of rookies, thanks to a spectacular assist from the NFLPA.
We’ll have exclusive video footage of all of Thursday’s activities in the coming days right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, check out our gallery of highlights from yesterday’s activities.
