STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State tailback Silas Redd still stands by his former coach Joe Paterno. Defensive tackle Jordan Hill does, too.
Redd, Hill and the rest of the Nittany Lions are trying to weather another stormy period after the university’s investigation of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal said Paterno concealed allegations.
Most Nittany Lions, before a player-organized charity event Friday, said they didn’t watch the news conference Thursday about the probe, but had at least heard of the findings.
Paterno died in January. Redd says Paterno did “a lot more good than bad” for Penn State, while Hill said no one was perfect.
Nearly all the Nittany Lions declined comment about the report itself. They’re focused on getting ready for the upcoming season. Training camp starts in a month.
