Player Profiles:

  • The Patriot-News got an inside look at the weekend and Monday practices, and it's possible Kevin Newsome won't get the start at the season's beginning. (
  • The No. 2 "Hero" on the Penn State defense is redshirt junior Andrew Dailey, who was profiled by a home-state paper. (
  • For most Penn State football players, childhood included pee-wee football and national peace. For Bani Gbadyu, it meant fearing for his life in a war-torn country. (
  • The fresh-faced linebacker corps is facing tough odds this year, but they're supported by the optimism of Michael Mauti. (
  • The Penn State defense lost a great number of leaders last year, but defensive end Jack Crawford is ready to fill that role. (

Penn State Football:

  • Tight ends aren't as popular in the college football scene as they used to be, but Penn State has recently produced a number of NFL-quality players at that position. (
  • A win at Alabama would put the Nittany Lions in the running for a national championship this year. Unfortunately, a win at Alabama is unlikely at best. (

Alumni News:

  • Former receiver/superstar Derrick Williams feels he'll make an impact in the 2010 season for the Detroit Lions. (
  • Hard-hitting Penn State product Anthony Scirrotto, who had been on the Giants' practice squad in '09, has been signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. (
