I was born and raised in Pa. Sat through many a Penn State game and watched Joe pace back and forth,white sox peaking out below his trousers.They became one of his trade marks. I will never apologize for my respect and admiration of this man. He was a good and giving man,giving most of what he earned back to society and the University. He lived simply and followed his passion,which in turn helped many. I pray for the young men who were wronged by Sandusky and everyone who failed them,first Sandusky,anyone else in the community who knew and did nothing or covered it up and I include the parents. Society failed these young men for sure. I include Joe in this list also. All should have done more. However I refuse to forget the good this man has done. Utah is now my home. I want to tell you how wonderful it was to read this article from someone who did not have Pa ties to this man and still understands.Thank you.
