Penn State head coach James Franklin meets his doppelganger (Photo)


New Penn State Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin has been having a blast since returning home to take over the football program following the departure of Bill O’Brien. Since the say of his introductory press conference, he seems genuinely pleased with that fact that he’s now at a place he feels he always wanted to be.

One thing that Franklin has stressed that makes him completely happy about being back is being around the Penn State fans, and he’ll get the chance to meet a lot of them as he’s currently on the coaches caravan.

While Franklin himself grew up a Penn State fan, he met one on Thursday that may have hit a little too close to home…because he looks exactly like him.


Now that is the definition of a doppelganger. Some resemblances could be argued for hours on end, but certainly not this one. If Franklin ever needs a break, he knows who to call to fill in.
