The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in the case of Kirk Herbstreit and his oldest son.

This summer, Kirk Herbstreit's son interned for the Pat McAfee Show.

McAfee had Kirk Herbstreit on his show earlier this week, telling the ESPN college football analyst how proud he should be of his son.

That's a pretty cool thing for the ESPN college football analyst to hear.

"He seems like an awesome dude, while he enjoys college and y’all need extra hands I’ll move to Indy," one fan joked.

"This is awesome!" one fan added.

Kirk's son was appreciative, too.

Well done, Jake.
