Over 300 Former Penn State Players Sign Statement in Support of Paterno Family Lawsuit

Over 300 Former Penn State Players Sign Statement in Support of Paterno Family Lawsuit

Nearly 325 former Penn State players released a statement on Monday in support of Joe Paterno’s family and the lawsuit they filed against the NCAA to overturn the NCAA sanctions that resulted from the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

According to CBS Sports, “Brian Masella, who graduated from Penn State in 1975 after playing both tight end and punter for the Nittany Lions,” led the group and recognizable names included “current Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, former quarterback Kerry Collins and current ESPN analyst Todd Blackledge.”

“In speaking with a couple former players, we wanted to do something to support the (others) involved in the lawsuit,” Masella told the Associated Press in a phone interview. “We had to start somewhere. It basically started to snowball.”

CBS reports the players demand “fairness, due process, truth, and a just outcome. Everyone — Sandusky’s victims, Penn Staters, and the public at large — deserves to know the complete truth” in the statement.
