Penn State Football: Key Players For a Successful Season

Steven SwansonContributor IAugust 27, 2009

It has been declared by many people. What, you may be thinking. Well, that Penn State is going to have a bad 2009 - 2010 season. Some say because of all their key losses. Others say because of the opposition.

Yeah, it's true. Penn State lost some really good, if not great, key players. Players like Deon Butler, Jordan Norwood and Derrick Williams. All of whom were the starting receivers for Penn State. There are more, but those are the three big losses for Penn State.

Look at the opposition. Ohio State and Michigan State being, in my opinion, the two toughest games of their season-but can they pull it off with their key returning players? Lets take a look.

Penn State 2009 - 2010 Roster:

Daryll Clark - The most important player returning to Penn State. Last season, he had 192 completed passes, a total of 2,592 passing yards and only six interceptions the whole season. Penn State is going to need him.

Evan Royster - Evan Royster is an amazing back. Last season, he had 1,236 yards, with an average of 6.5 yards per carry, and 12 touchdowns. He can run all over any team.

Stephfon Green - The speedster. He has amazing speed and agility. He can shake defenders and run up and down the field all day. He has great potential.

Sean Lee - One of the best, if not THE best, linebacker for Penn State. Even though he was out all of last season due to injury, he has amazing potential to do great things in '09.

Penn State has many more great players coming back this year. They have the potential to have a great season. Whether they will or not has yet to be seen. Good luck Penn State.
