Catching Up With Adam Taliaferro

As the five-year anniversary of his injury approaches, the former Penn State defensive back talks with contributor Matt Leon about the past, present and future.

Leon recently caught up with Taliaferro, who is preparing for his first year of law school. The interview took place in South Jersey.

For the few people who have not followed this story, Taliaferro was a rookie defensive back for the Penn State football team in 2000 when a collision in a game at Ohio State left him paralyzed. Doctors wondered if he'd ever walk again.

While his football career ended that day due to the broken neck, he otherwise made an amazing recovery from the injury, eventually returning to school and helping the Nittany Lions as a student assistant coach. The Voorhees, N.J., native picked up his degree in labor and industrial relations in the spring, and now hopes to become a sports agent.
