Video: James Franklin Kicked Off His Press Conference Today By Bringing A Penn State Legend A Birthday Cake

Former Penn State football radio broadcaster Fran Fisher celebrates his 91st birthday today. To honor the occasion, Fisher attended Nittany Lion head coach James Franklin's weekly press conference today, and as it began, he was met with a surprise. Franklin kicked off his presser by bringing Fisher a birthday cake and sang "Happy Birthday" to the PSU legend.

It's really cool to see Franklin honoring a school legend on his birthday, and Fisher cracked a joke after Franklin finished singing. It sometimes takes a new coach a while to fully get incorporated into a school and its surrounding community, but it seems like Franklin has done a great job becoming a member of the Penn State community.
