Bryan Scott on Paterno passing

Posted by Chris Brown on January 22, 2012 – 2:18 pm

The following statement is being sent on behalf of Buffalo Bills safety Bryan Scott , Penn State alum regarding the passing of Joe Paterno.

It’s really difficult to find words that encompass what Coach Paterno will forever mean to me.

He reinforced that a man’s character, morals, values and fundamentals were the main ingredient for success.

Succeeding in the classroom, succeeding at your job, succeeding at home, should all be placed before success on the football field.

The fact that the all-time winningest collegiate coach placed a much higher precedence on guiding his players to a successful life, is indicative of his authentic values and iconic character.

He brought great perspective to my life, and I will always and forever take those lessons, live by them, and pass them forward.
