Joe Paterno Dies At 85

Joe Paterno

A Legend is Gone

A coaching legend passed away today.

 Paterno died of Lung Cancer complications. Paterno was being treated for cancer since November, days after he was fired for the scandal at Penn State.

Paterno is a two-time national champion, and has the record of most wins among Division I coaches with 409 in 46 seasons.

However, his impact on the field pales in comparison to his impact off the field.

Joe Paterno was Penn State.

 He was a legend walking amongst men. He was kind, generous and compassionate about his student body and his football team.

Paterno was more than a coach, he was teacher of life amongst young men. He used his platform as a coach to change countless lives around him.

It is so sad to know that his last image was being fired amidst a child sex scandal under his watch.

It is unfortunate to think how the actions of one complete idiot can affect the legacy of a coaching giant and a proud university.

Penn State did not lose their coach, they lost their “father” as Penn State alums would say.

I hope the sex scandal is not the last memory people have of Joe Paterno, he was a great man who used football to teach young men the values of life.

His memory will not be forgotten, I hope he will be remembered for the right reasons.
