Penn State's Franklin invites media to participate in spring game

  James Franklin invited media members to play in the spring game.

You might be seeing people other than just student athletes on the field in Penn State’s spring game this year. Coach James Franklin invited media members to join in on some of the action. And we’re not just talking about covering the game.

Franklin told media members that they could step onto the field to actually play in parts of the game, so they could get a real interactive experience.

“We thought that would be fun," Franklin said to ESPN.
