Eli Manning tries out for Penn State

Written by Tony Ghaul

Former NFL quarterback Eli Manning puts on disguise and tries out undercover for Penn State in hilarious bit.

Eli Manning went undercover as “Chad Powers” to try out for college football team Penn State. He wore a wig, a fake mustache, and prosthetics for the skit. Eli said during the tryout, “I can throw it, baby!”

Penn State Head coach James Franklin was in on the joke, but the rest of the Nittany Lion hopefuls remained unaware of Powers’ true identity, believing he was a “home-schooled” Pennsylvania prospect. His 40 time was not good, but then he started slinging the football effortlessly all over the field.

At the end of the skit, Coach Franklin revealed that Powers did not make the team because his numbers weren’t good enough and that he was also ineligible because he was, in fact, Eli Manning.
