STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State sophomore Saquon Barkley is getting a lot of attention this season as one of the nation's top running backs. He also wants to add one more line to his resumé - kickoff returner. The 5-foot-11, 223-pound native of the Lehigh Valley said he got the idea - "100 percent" - from watching Stanford's Christian McCaffrey, who set an NCAA record last season for all-purpose yards. "I'm a fan of the running backs. I like watching them," Barkley said Thursday at Penn State media day. "McCaffrey is a guy who can do it all. Just the type of talent he brought to the return game is something I hope I can maybe bring.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Everything is new with the Penn State offense as it begins preparations for the 2016 football season. A new offensive coordinator has installed a new system to replace the one that had the Nittany Lions at or near the bottom of the Big Ten offensive statistics for the last two seasons. Now the question is: Which new quarterback will direct this offense implemented by the new coordinator, former Fordham head coach Joe Moorhead? Christian Hackenberg is gone to the NFL, and his replacement will come from his backups for the last two seasons - redshirt sophomore Trace McSorley and redshirt freshman Tommy Stevens.

Now that Jackie Rogowicz plays golf at Penn State, she's finding that her competition schedule has changed quite a bit. "It's weird," said Rogowicz, a Pennsbury High School graduate who is entering her sophomore season for the Nittany Lions. "It used to be like my summer was the golf season, now it's the fall and spring. " That didn't stop the 18-year-old Yardley resident from carding a 1-over-par 72 Monday on an overcast summer day in the opening round of qualifying for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship at Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Delaware County.

In his first Haverford High School swim meet, Shane Ryan dove in for the 50-yard freestyle, and Haverford coach Matt Stewart just knew. Ryan was something special. "He beat a senior from another team," Stewart said, "and I was like,'Whoa, we might have something here beyond just a pretty good swimmer.' He just took off from there. " Ryan's rise has been unconventional. After high school, the 22-year-old Havertown native swam at Penn State for three years. Ryan, a dual Irish-American citizen, then moved to Ireland to train with its national team.

FLEETWOOD, Pa. - As Cole Miller prepped to pose for celebratory photos with the trophy, he struggled for one of the only times all day. "It's heavy," he said. Miller's win in the 103rd Pennsylvania Amateur at Moselem Springs Golf Club held a little extra weight. "I would say this is probably my biggest win to date," said Miller, a junior this fall at Penn State. Entering Wednesday's final round, Miller trailed Nittany Lions teammate J.D. Dornes, who was at 10-under par, by three strokes.

LEHMAN, Pa. - After a historic tuition freeze, Pennsylvania State University's in-state students, whose costs are among the highest in the country for those attending public colleges, may once again see higher bills. The Penn State board of trustees' committee on finance, business, and capital planning voted Thursday to recommend a 2.29 percent increase in the 2016-17 tuition for in-state students at the university's main campus. At last July's board meeting, university president Eric Barron announced a tuition freeze for in-state students, the first time the university had done so in almost 50 years.

ISSUE | PENN STATE Sandusky payouts vetted and thorough As chair of the Penn State board of trustees, I thought it might be helpful to highlight how the board approached the settlements for the more than 30 sex-abuse victims of former football coach Jerry Sandusky ("Trustees question Sandusky payouts," Friday). In October 2012, the full board met and authorized the legal subcommittee to approve settlements. At my direction, Ira Lubert chaired a talented subcommittee with executive experience, including legal.
