I was very close to going to West Virginia, who guaranteed I would be a starter four years ... But I dreamed of playing for Penn State and Joe Paterno, one of the greatest coaches of all time. Joe said a couple things when he was here last week that really made sense. He talked about life after football and about playing before 84,000 people, and playing schools like Notre Dame and Southern California.
We may have had some negative press last week in the paper, but Caleb Johnson is everything that's good about Northern Lehigh ... He has the academics, he has the athletics, but I am really proud of him because he's that nice of a kid, too. He's a genuinely great kid.
In my heart, there's no way I think Joe Paterno knew what was going on ... Just speaking from my heart, that's how I feel. I wish his name could be cleared of any involvement whatsoever, so we could continue to pay homage to Joe and what he meant to Penn State and college football as a whole.More quotes »
