Spikes plan Franklin bobblehead night

On Tuesday, the State College Spikes unveiled the artwork for the team’s Coach Franklin Bobblehead Doll giveaway on Thursday, Aug. 28.

The first 1,000 fans attending that night’s 7:05 p.m. game (Public gates open at 6 p.m.) will receive the giveaway presented by The Nittany Lion Inn & The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel and ESPN Radio 1450.

The bobblehead recreates the popular picture of Coach Franklin taken inside Beaver Stadium on the same day he was announced as football coach.

He is depicted holding a football with a Spikes logo in front of stadium gates that say “Dominate the State.”
