PSU WR Duo Catching On

Nittany Lions receivers fighting for catches on the outside.
STATE COLLEGE - Nittany Nation has been looking for a replacement for two-time Big Ten receiver of the year Allen Robinson.
 
Well, seeing is believing for a couple wide-outs.
 
Sophomore Geno Lewis and redshirt freshman DaeSean Hamilton have delivered in record-setting fashion, combining for 19 catches, 338 yards and a score in Penn State’s 26-24 win over UCF in the season opener.
 
A big key to the performance was how the two Nittany Lions won 50-50 jump balls - passes where both the receiver and the defender have a shot at making the play.
 
"Going up and attacking the ball, with that mentality, usually one of two things will happen: You'll either make the catch or you'll get the interference call,” says head coach James Franklin. “That's got to be a wide receiver or a tight end's mentality; that every time the ball is in the air, they are either going to come down with it or it's going to be a pass interference call or both-- they are going to come down with it with a pass interference call."
 
Franklin says the key now is a consistent approach from Lewis and Hamilton.
 
Not just in games, but also in practice.
