Over the summer, numerous Penn State players held Zoom press conferences. Receiver Jahan Dotson gave some excellent insight into how the players will have to be accountable once they leave the football facility to protect themselves, their teammates and the football program during the coronavirus pandemic.
Dotson also discusses new WR coach Taylor Stubblefield and other interesting topics in this Q&A:
Q: Are there different leadership challenges this year to keep everybody safe, and what will that say about accountability and leadership in the locker room?

It’s definitely gonna have to be some accountability toward guys going out and the risk of getting sick. That comes with the leadership role. Honestly, I’m just going to have to take on the task myself to let guys know that we need you, basically. We need everyone hands on, all aboard, and we’re not going to be able to do this thing without each other.
