    Eli walked into that makeup artist at 41 years old and walked out at 46 and a half years old. Genius.

    Him saying his mom wasn't smart but she was a good coach was gold

    Chad's constant self talk and banter with the players was hilarious!

    I love the coach getting all excited, “I think I see something in him” lol

    "Brady can play til he's 45, Chad can play til he's 26" killed me when the Chad disguise made Eli look 15 years older than he already is

    Imagine what these young men are thinking that this guy is making us look bad and then they find out who he is. It would be one part relief and one part thrilled to meet him.

    I forget how good these guys are until seeing it all in context. With that being said, seeing walk-ons is a reminder of how difficult it is to get on a college roster - let alone with a reputable team. To see Eli in retirement go in there and look like a pro among the college players shows the level he plays at. I gained a whole lot more respect for Eli after this. Last, his humor and personality shined through in spades. Now I see how he was a leader capable of Super Bowl rings. I never necessarily doubted him, but now it's clear. The coaches who thought he was a walk-on had to have been disappointed to see it was fake. They thought they had a walk-on starter! Haha...

    The disappointment on the coach’s face when Eli took the face off and he found out he couldn’t sign him was hilarious😂

    I played my college ball at The University of South Carolina. I fondly remember those after practice team huddles when coach Jim Carlen would announce one of my teammates would be rewarded with a scholarship and the response from the other teammates was exactly the same as in this video. It only happened a few times but It was one of the highlights of every season.

    Loved this episode, so funny! Great job Coach Franklin and Penn State for allowing this episode to be filmed in their facility. This is a serious thing many teams (if not all teams) do for players. It was great seeing behind the scenes. It was also great to see those young men putting their hopes and dreams out there for us all to see. Thanks to all. Well done!

    Eli shined here. How do you make a 41 into a home schooled 18 yo?

    Props to the one coach who saw the talent and wanted to sign him despite the bad physicals

    never was a Manning fan, but the more I see of both him and Peyton, the more I like both of them and wish they were still in the league for sure..... great guys!

    You know Peyton told Eli before every game “ don’t go deep, get some completions” and Eli won a super bowl by having the leagues best deep ball lol.
