DOTD: James Franklin Dresses As Easter Bunny, Form Tackles Piñata

Easter at the James Franklin residence is, well, different.

Franklin and his wife decided to host an event for the football staff and their families, one full of fun, excitement, and candy. Franklin surprised everybody by dressing up as the Easter Bunny and took his turn taking a swing at the piñata they’d set up and loaded with treats. But instead of hitting it, Franklin did his best LaVar Arrington impression and decked it with a perfectly executed form tackle which caused the candy to spill everywhere, much to the delight of the children in attendance.

Take a look for yourself; Franklin might be 44 years old, but he looks like he could blitz the edge like Brandon Bell.
