Adam Taliaferro Speaks out About Board of Trustees

Audio/Story posted March 13, 2012 in CommRadio, Sports, News by Willie Jungels

Former Penn State Football Cornerback Adam Taliaferro spoke with Willie Jungels about the Board of Trustees decision-making following the the Sandusy scandal and his campaign to be on the board.

Taliaferro joined Penn State in 2000 but suffered a career-ending spinal chord injury in his fifth career game. Taliaferro was paralyzed and had no movement from the neck down. Less than a year later, he returned to the Nittany Lions and led the team onto the field in front of a Beaver Stadium crowd of over 109,000.

Taliaferro is now one of over 80 members campaigning to earn one of three available spots on the Penn State Board of Trustees.

The voting period begins April 10 and ends May 3.
