Frequent readers of Dr. Saturday know we’re big fans of Penn State offensive line coach Herb Hand. The dude just oozes cool. He’s an awesome guy to follow on Twitter, he’s an awesome chef who appeared on Chopped on the Food Network, and he loves to show off his rapping skills.

Hand showcased his flow back in April at the inaugural Herb Hand Pizza Crawl in State College, and his talents were once again on display at Penn State’s junior elite camp on Friday.

Thanks to Joe Hermitt from Pennlive, we get to see a quick clip of Hand in action.

For those unaware, Hand is rapping a verse from a pretty obscure Eminem song – “8 Mile” – from the 8 Mile movie soundtrack that was released back in 2002.

Hand raps:

“To be walkin this borderline of Detroit city limits. It’s different, it’s a certain significance, a certificate of authenticity. You’d never even see. But it’s everything to me. It’s my credibility. You never seen, heard, smelled or met a real MC who’s incredible upon the same pedestal as me.”

Fittingly, after finishing his rap, he drops the mic and is greeted with smiles by a few other Penn State coaches.

Well done, Coach.
