To the Penn State football seniors, I applaud you for being role models not only to the team members but also to the entire Penn State family.
Rather than abandoning the team you committed to as high school seniors, you chose to stay with “the road less taken.” You selected to ignore the option to move on to a safe program, and instead chose to be men of your word. This is a tribute to your families, your high school coaches, and, most importantly, to the values instilled in you by coach Paterno.
In your core, you knew what was expected of you, and you moved forward. Four coaches in four years, and you stayed the course. You will be an inspiration to more youth than you can possibly imagine. Thank you.
Christine and Michael Raiser
