Video: What having a 'family environment' really means for one FBS program

"There is not going to be a staff in the country that will care more about your sons and will be more committed to making sure that they are successful, not just on the football field, but in life. Because the strength of Penn State is the people."

That's the message that James Franklin had during a parents picnic celebration where the football staff sat down to break bread with their players and their families.

The rest of the video echoes that same sentiment, and provides a great recruiting pitch on the atmosphere that Franklin and his staff have brought with them to Happy Valley.

This is the kind of stuff parents love to hear, and you'll see them weigh in on the new atmosphere surrounding the program as well.
