PENN STATE FOREVER
PENN STATE FOREVER
Great story, Jeff, and a fantastic idea for a series. I look forward to the future installments!
Met Bill shortly after he moved over to Goldman Sachs. He is one impressive, driven individual, and a very fine representative of Penn State University and the Penn State football program.
Yet another shining example of our "culture" problem.
"Mothers gave birth in mud huts without any qualified assistance"... Without basic medical assistance, child birth with complications is life-threatening. So proud of Mr. & Mrs. Spoor. It's efforts like this that make all the difference in the world to people in need.

WE ARE! #Culture
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Well done, Mr. Rice. Well done.
THIS is the real Paterno legacy. You can't deny the many times he encouraged this type of behavior from his players.
Pete was damn proud of his son and for good reason.
I had accounting 101 (Charlie Smith over the TV screen) with Bill and Greg Huntington...both were very good guys. After I graduated I moved to DC and Greg was playing for the Skins would meet him at 3rd Edition with another FP who shall remain nameless... My pickup line used to be " You know my boy was the Captain of PSU football...right?"(other guy)...never worked.:)
Stories like these reinforce what we already know, that Penn State is in fact a special place, and that "We Are" is more than a football chant. Great article and great idea for a series...
Awesome job, Jeff. Great story.
