Who Did You Look UpTo?

 
Who Did You Look UpTo?
 
            I sat down for dinner last week in one of Northeastern’s dining halls and looked up atthe 15 or so T.V. screens. As I expected, on the T.V.s that were set to ESPN, Joe Paterno was the major, if not only, focus. I was intrigued, though, when I looked over to the news channels and screens littered with tickers, to still see Paterno’s face. This Penn State scandal is perhaps the largest scandal in American Professional and Collegiate sports to surface in history.
 
            As a child, I grew up loving sports, like most young boys, and hearing famous names. Joe Paterno was one such name. At the time, I only knew that this man was a legend, someone to be looked up to and aspire toward being like. After the past few days, I think it is safe to say that we need to reconsider who we look up to and how we allow things like this Penn State scandal to happen unnoticed on, arguably, the most influential stage as it regards to the development of young minds. We need to look more closely at the kid who dreams his entire life about playing or coaching D1 and professional athletics only to get there and, with his vision so skewed, do whatever it takes to succeed.
 
            There are those who stand by Paterno as an icon, as someone who was manipulated. But when is everyone, including those who are part of the machine, going to take back their integrity and decide for themselves that what is being allowed is wrong? Stand up with us at Hordon Health and with Renegades worldwide in our American Revolution of Sport.
