This summer Onward State had the opportunity to interview Penn State Football’s QB Coach Jay Paterno. We collectively panicked to figure out what questions to ask, but then after pulling ourselves together we were able to come up with a well rounded interview. Coach Paterno was very generous in his responses and let us into his unique role as both a coach and the son of a football legend.
OS: What is your favorite part about game day?
JP: The best part of game day is when the ball is kicked off and we get into the ebb and flow, the give and take. It is seeing how the opponents try to stop what we are doing and then adjusting our attack. That is the fun of game day, the mental part of the game, the competition—and all in front of 110,000+ fans and millions more at home watching on television.
