DOTD: Penn State TE Hingle McCringleberry Talks NFL Draft At ESPN

Keegan Michael-Key has made us laugh with the many different characters he’s portrayed over the years ranging from Coach Hines to James Franklin. But no character has made Penn Staters prouder than tight end Hingle McCringleberry.

Known mainly for his “three-pump” touchdown celebration, McCringleberry visited ESPN to talk with NFL Live host Trey Wingo about his stock in this year’s NFL Draft.

McCringleberry also talked about his rivalry with Michigan State’s Jackmerius Tacktheritrix, what his teammates would say about him, and his reaction to his signature “three-pump” touchdown celebration being deemed illegal.

The fictitious McCringleberry joins the likes of Christian Hackenberg, Austin Johnson, Carl Nassib, and other Penn Staters hoping to hear their names called at the 2016 NFL Draft starting on April 28. No matter what team he ends up on, McCringleberry will always give us three pumps no matter the penalty.
