DOTD: Keegan-Michael Key Surprises Penn State Football During Team Meeting

In the spirit of homecoming weekend, Homecoming Grand Marshal Keegan-Michael Key came to surprise the football team in his own special way. The players in the meeting room were expecting James Franklin to walk in, but received a surprise that nobody could’ve expected.

Key walked into the meeting room pretending to be the Penn State football coach, and to be honest it was hard to tell the difference between the two. Key was dressed head to toe in Penn State gear, donning the usual coach’s attire typically worn by Franklin, mimicking his look all the way up to the glasses. Key was a hit with the players, drawing eruptions of laughter after poking fun at the coach’s mannerisms.


Key’s prank was a great way to kick-off the homecoming weekend, but be sure to keep you eyes peeled; this isn’t the first time Keegan-Michael Key has surprised a group of students at Penn State. Students, be sure to stay sharp in class today, as Key may have a few more surprises up his sleeve.
