3 New Faces DOMINATE Penn State Football Winter Workouts
The Penn State Football team began winter workouts Tuesday, marking the first opportunity for transfer players and early enrollee freshmen to take part in team activities.
Over James Franklin’s tenure, assistant coaches have always named a competitor of the day for each position group. For the first winter workout in 2023, the Nittany Lions saw three new faces take home the crown as competitor of the day in their respective positions.
