Paterno Honored By Pennsylvania Hall Of Fame

The Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame inducts Joe Paterno as the headliner to its 53rd class.

Joe Paterno, the winningest coach in FBS history with 409 victories, was among 12 inductees for the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame's 53rd annual class. The inductee class had a strong Penn State flavor aside from Paterno, with former Nittany Lion football stars Matt Bahr (kicker) and Chuck Fusina (quarterback) joing Paterno as honorees.

Paterno's wife, Sue, and son, Jay, were on hand to accept the induction on behalf of the late coach. Watch Jay Paterno's speech at the ceremony here.

The induction took place at Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia, Pa.
