Penn State Football Morning Briefing: Running Back Duo on List for Doak Walker, Storylines to Watch, and Other News

Friday’s Penn State news is a bit on the light side. Consider this the calm before the storm as the news will begin to fly in as we get closer to the start of the 2014 season.

As for now, the preseason honors continue to come for the Nittany Lions. It was announced on Thursday that running backs Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton are both on the preseason watch list for the Doak Walker Award, given annually to the nation’s top running back. Elsewhere, Black Shoe Diaries brings us a profile of another former Nittany Lion, linebacker Michael Mauti. Eugene Lewis, Penn State’s new No. 1 receiver is not bothered by the pressure of replacing the great Allen Robinson and there are some storylines to watch this season. Finally, there’s a preview of freshman linebacker Troy Reeder and the Nittany Lions have added some teams to their future schedules.
