Penn State kicked off its annual football training camp by introducing players to their new locker room, initially posting on Twitter the first moments of the team coming in on Wednesday evening.
The Penn State Althletic website posted a photo gallery of the project, sharing so fans can see what the players experienced.
Here is how the team reacted to the new space:

Still, with the excitement of a new locker room, some players found it difficult to not start the season a little early.
Uh, guys. Practice is tomorrow. And no pads. We went over this all in squad...— Penn State Football (@PennStateFball) August 4, 2016
Now with new-found enthusiasm for the season, the Nittnay Lions' football team can spend its training camp, which started Thursday, focusing on working toward a winning season.
