UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - While the Penn State Fall Sports season may have kicked off with women's soccer in action last week, Nittany Lion fans got a unique perspective from the annual athletics Fall Sports Media Day.

Coaches and student-athletes from seven different Penn State programs set to compete this fall met with members of the media to talk 2016 and their expectations for the upcoming year.

Check out some highlights and links to videos, transcripts and extra coverage from today's event. 

Men's Golf

Penn State men's golf head coach Greg Nye spoke highly of his team's progress in the offseason, giving a special shout out to alums TJ How and Kevin Foley, who both competed in the U.S. Open this summer.

With a relatively young team coming in, Nye mentioned that just three of the nine student-athletes on the team have played more than three collegiate events. Nye is confident that the veteran leaders will be able to help the younger members of the squad make their transition.

"We're definitely excited to adopt the younger guys on the team into our culture," said junior Christian Elliott. "Over the past couple of years our team has been really tight knit so implementing that and just getting ready to compete. I know we're all pretty fired up for the fall season to get off to a good start and pick up where we left off last year."
