Penn State Football's annual Media Day took place Thursday beginning with Head Coach Bill O'Brien's inagural press conference. O'Brien emphasized the need for the program, players and school to move forward in light of harsh NCAA sanctions imposed following the Jerry Sandusky scandal. He stated the need for the continued leadership of the seniors while noting the talent of several underclassman players.
Following the press conference, the players and coaching staff gathered inside Beaver Stadium for photos and player interviews. Media also had the opportunity to view football practice later in the afternoon at the Lasch Building fields where O'Brien's Lions took to the field for an array of drills and scrimmages.
