Penn State coach James Franklin wanted to increase the intensity at the team’s individual video shoots this week.

As defensive tackle Fred Hansard was being videoed for promotional clips, Franklin came onto the scene and asked for more energy from his fifth-year defensive lineman.

“Bring some energy! Do it again!” Franklin said. “Bring the juice, your energy sucks! Do it again.”

Here’s the clip:

That’s an awesome moment between player and coach. Despite a tough season a year ago, it’s good to see morale still as high as it appears to be at Penn State.


Hansard has been a rotational defensive lineman for most of his career. He did appear in eight games last season, recording six tackles and one tackle for loss.

For his career, Hansard has 23 total tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss and one sack.

Penn State opens its 2021 season on Sept. 4 vs. Wisconsin.
