Daryll clark and Evan Royster return for their Senior and junior season, how could the Nittany Lions not play good? I think the answer to this question is simple, they cant.
Joe Paterino led the Penn State Nittany Lions to an impressive 2008 season with a record of 11-2. In 2009, two of the Penn State's best players return with the BCS championship in sight.
Evan Royster was a prolific lacrosse player in High school and was a huge part of his high school football team. In Royster's sophomore season of high school he ran for 1,690 yards and 22 TDs. In his high school career he ran for a sensational 6,384 on 750 carries and 90 touchdowns.
In 2008, Royster did not disappoint either, he ran for 1,236 yards on 191 carries and scored 12 TDs. I think in the 2009 season Royster will have more experience under his belt and will come out each game and tourch teams will is physical running style.
Daryll Clark who looks to take over for Penn State in the '09 season will have nothing less than a great season. Last season Clark scored 19 touchdowns and threw for 2,592 yards. In '08 Clark had a passer rating of 143.44.
As a Nittnany Lion Clark has 2,739 yards passing. Clark first proved he could be a great player for this Penn State team in the 2007 Valero Alamo Bowl. Coach's turned to Clark to provide a spark for Penn State, Clark entered the game and turned it around. The Penn State team walked away with a victory...
So if your a Penn State fan how can you go wrong in 2009 behind two talented players in Evan Royster and Daryll Clark?
I think Penn state could go far, and I would love to hear what expectations Penn State fans have for them next season.
