...And Leaving on a Good Note

Anyone who has followed the Big Ten Football for the past 10 years surely remembers the name Adam Taliaferro. Adam was a freshman cornerback at Penn State when he broke his neck and was paralyzed in a game versus Ohio State. I still remember watching that play over an over again on ESPN and thinking at how innocent the entire play looked. It didn't seem like that much damage could have been done in the snap second tackle.

But alas, Adam was paralyzed and his struggle to walk again was highly publicized. He provided motivation to teammates and ignited fans in Happy Valley with every appearance. And now, nearly 8 years after that tragic day, Adam is persevering again and getting his law degree.

From those of us at F&BT, congratulations Adam!
