Distraction of the Day: Franco Harris Singing


Franco Harris has been a polarizing figure in the Penn State community lately. He has taken it upon himself to be a very public figure throughout the turmoil at Penn State over the past 11 months.

When we last left our hero, Harris was interrupting the Board of Trustees meeting¬†and speaking at the very successful “Rally for Resignations” on the following day.

Now, thanks to YouTube member Sylvia W., we get to see a lighter, more soulful side to Harris. Watch below as Franco belts everyone’s favorite banned-from-Beaver-Stadium song, “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond. With the help of a lyric sheet, Franco serenades an exuberant crowd full of middle-aged Penn State fans.
