Training camp will have a new feel as first-year head coach James Franklin puts his energetic stamp on the practices.

 The Nittany Lions are stressing competition at all positions.

 The initial depth chart is based solely on seniority.

 But there's no doubt who enters the fall as QB one- Sophomore signal caller Christian Hackenberg is ready to work.

"For me it's just, I'm going to prepare as best as I can. I'm gonna go out there and try to execute the best that I can and whatever happens, happens. If you prepare and you're confident about it, you'll be successful. So I'm excited about what the team can do this year."
