    Ryan-I read your article about Allie Southard in the latest Penn Stater and am trying to find it on line. Without too many details I have someone near and dear to me whose daughter recently had a similar and serious injury. I’d like to forward this story on to him to give to his daughter as an inspiraton but can’t fiture out how to do it. Penn State ’70.

    Hey Ryan. I saw your article on the resignation of Coach Gorman and I thought I’d take the opportunity to discuss something else with you. I was a four year starter for Coach Bahr (1981-85). I just released a great DVD, ‘FIGHT-The Movie” which includes the stories of 2 Penn Staters…Adam Taliaferro and Chris Kaag. Of course you know Adam’s story. Chris has one equally compelling in a very different way. He’s a former Marine who lost the use of his legs while stationed overseas. From his wheelchair he now does more than most ‘able body’ individuals.
    The reason I’m telling you this is…I made this movie to help raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I coach a U-13 soccer team and one of my players, Nat Gallen, is fighting CF. I won’t bother sharing all the details on the movie…you can get those at our main site, http://www.iamreadytofight.com . Any publicity you can help us with will be greatly appreciated. Adam and I were recently at Penn State (don’t remember the date but it was the night PSU played Ohio State in hoops). We did a FIGHT presentation at the All Sports Hall of Fame and were later introduced during the hoops game. Check out the site. The movie is amazing…life changing for all who watch….and with every sale, we move a little bit closer to finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis! Feel free to call me as well. My cell is 610-468-8225. Many thanks.!!

    Loved your piece in the Penn Stater on Joe. I never liked the statue either, but it does give a place for remembering Paterno’s magnificent contributions to this fabulous University.

    No question that we are.. because he was.
