DOTD: James Franklin Pulls Off Olympic-Caliber Dive
James Franklin gave his Nittany Lions a much-needed break from camp Friday afternoon so they could enjoy a barbecue and cool off at the Natatorium. Franklin took the opportunity to showcase one of his hidden talents in front of the team: Olympic diving.

While he’s certainly too busy to pursue a spot on Team USA, Franklin proved he’s no slouch when it comes to high-flying aquatic feats. In fact, that platform he’s jumping off of is seven whole meters, or roughly 30 feet. We’d like to see Jim Harbaugh or Urban Meyer give that a try. Franklin clearly has some experience in the pool, as his form is hardly indicative of a beginner; just look at that minimal splash.
With only two weeks left before Penn State opens its season against Kent State on Sept. 3 in Beaver Stadium, fans can rest assured that Franklin has shifted his focus to the Golden Flashes, but boy, was that an impressive dive or what?
