Alumnus Bennie Kovach of Fairfax, Va., filmed his 5-year-old son Xavier (who asked to make a highlight video of him) reenacting a scene seen many times over the past year. Xavier imagined himself throwing a touchdown pass as Christian Hackenberg to Jesse James, followed by one of the best touchdown celebrations the world has ever seen. With Zombie Nation playing in the background, Xavier celebrates his touchdown in adorable fashion, starting with the ever-famous spike and followed by dance moves that would put Michael Jackson to shame.

“I thought this one turned out pretty funny, so we decided to tweet it to Coach Franklin,” Kovach said. Good move — the video caught the attention of Franklin, who tweeted it out to all of his followers and possibly put Xavier on his list to recruit later on.

With two alumni as parents, and his love for Penn State football already at the level of most fans, I think that it’s safe to say that Xavier is a future Penn Stater. Here is your distraction of the day:
