Via 69 News: Yep 69 News Awesome! Anyways back to the story- Berks man wants field named after Paterno.
A local man is leading a petition drive to have Penn State rename its football field after Joe Paterno.
Blake Tobias Sr., of Mohrsville, Berks Co., wants the Nittany Lions' home to be called "Paterno Field at Beaver Stadium."
Tobias, 45, plans to present to trustees a petition signed by107,282 people. That's the seating capacity of the stadium.
I have a personal connection, several actually to Penn State and would love for this to happen.
I know there are lots of people rightfully upset with Paterno's handling of the Sandusky situation. I get it, I agree he should have done more. There were several missed opportunities to stop Sandusky and several people who should have done more.
But it doesn't take away from all of the good things he did do. Not only for the football teams and players he coached, but the school and the community. If you'd like to sign the petition please do, if not that's fine too.
