Penn State linemen and coaches catch punts

This video is a couple of days old, but it is worth sharing in case you happened to miss it recently. In it you see James Franklin sending the message to his team that they are going to work hard, but they are also going to loosen up and have some fun at the same time when appropriate.

This special teams game has been done before at other programs, and perhaps it has been done at Penn State before (I don’t know for sure). It doesn’t seem like the sort of thing that would have happened during a Joe Paterno practice. Maybe a Bill O’Brien practice, but again I’m not sure to be honest. It is, however, classic Franklin. Whatever the case, capturing it on video is always entertaining.
