Quote for the Day

This is a perfect quote that relates to just about everything and anything. After a bad day – I always come back to this. “Losing a game is heartbreaking. Losing your sense of excellence or worth is a tragedy.” -Joe Paterno


We Are…A Family

Some people do not understand it, others think I/we are crazy, but losing Joe was hard. He was more than a coach, a public figure, and an educator…he was part of the family.
