For over 46 years, Joe Paterno served as head coach of Penn State’s Nittany Lions. He won over 409 games and took the Nittany Lions to 37 bowl games and two national championships- earning a spot in the Hall of Fame. More than 250 of the players he coached went on to the NFL.
What will be the legacy of this man who in the last few months of his life endured bitter scrutiny over a failure to take action that many felt he was compelled to take and did not? Some still feel that he should and will go down as the greatest football coach in the history of the game.
When it is all said and done, it is our legacy that we leave behind. Though we do not ultimately write it (some with forethought actually do), our life’s work has to speak for itself. The difference that we make while we live is the purpose that we served. It should be how any fiinal act in our life is judged.
