Hrabovsky proud to have played for Paterno
Paterno and Paul
Paul Hrabovsky (right) introduced friends and fellow Camden residents Henry DuRant (left) and Bill Ferguson (second from left) to his former Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno, as the three men and their families took a vacation which led them through Happy Valley, Pa., in the summer of 2008.
In all the stories written about the late Joe Paterno since news of the child sex abuse scandal broke last November to those which have appeared in regard to the passing of the former Penn State University football on Sunday morning, it has been the “but” in those columns and/or stories which bothers Paul Hrabovsky most. Paterno, the iconic Penn State football coach whose 409 wins in his 46-year coaching career are an NCAA record for a Division I program, passed away Sunday after a short battle with lung cancer. The affliction was detected in a routine physical in the days following his dismissal as the Nittany Lions’ football coach last November.
