Coach Franklin Hand Delivers Season Tickets

For the second consecutive year, Coach James Franklin decided to do something special for a couple of season ticket holders. Documented in a short video, Franklin went around and surprised a number of fans by hand delivering their season tickets.

Armed with cheerleaders and a perfect smile, you can really see how genuine a guy Franklin is. He is seen graciously shaking each persons’ hand and asking for a picture as he hands them a giant version of a ticket to hold up. As he introduces himself as James to each person you would never know he was the man in charge of one of the biggest football programs in the country.

The video does more than show his love for Penn State fans — it shows how much Franklin loves his job. The essence of his strong recruiting aura is prevalent with each person he talks to and it isn’t so hard to imagine why 247sports.com has the Penn State 2016 class ranked number six.

Look for Penn State football to be back this fall stronger than ever. With his first year under his belt, Franklin will certainly be more comfortable and this can only translate to more wins. The season starts September 5 versus Temple, and there is no doubt Coach Franklin won’t be more than ready.
