"We're all anxious, seeing how great of a team they had last year," freshman lineman Jared Odrick told FOS. "We just want to be a part of it. We're all here to work hard to try to get on the field as soon as possible."
"I have been anxious since I first got here to tell you the truth. These few years and off-season have been a learning experience. I am so excited to get the season started," Anthony Morelli said.
According to freshman wideout Chris Bell, "A lot of the freshman - me, Maurice Evans, Andrew Quarless and Jared Odrick - we're always saying we're ready for the season to start. We're tired of just running and lifting and we just want the season to start."
Here are some important dates related to the coming preseason practice.
August 7: Preseason practice kicks off
August 12: PSU Media Day
