YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The Youngstown State Penguins kicked-off the 2019 season with the first practice this afternoon at Stambaugh Stadium. 

The Penguins are coming off a disappointing 4-7 season last year, one that fifth-year head coach Bo Pelini wants to put behind him.

Following his teams first practice, though young, Pelini believes the Penguins are headed in the right direction. 

"Along with the vets, we have a lot of new faces out there. Guys that are swimming in it mentally a little bit, but I thought that guys came out here and competed," Pelini said. "I thought we had a really good summer leading up to this, and the message is you have an opportunity to be a good football team, but we have a lot of work to put in. A lot of work ahead of us." 

The Penguins have four weeks to prepare before the regular-season opener in Montgomery, Alabama against Samford.
