Video: Former BOT Candidate Discusses Paterno Statue Removal

Class of 1964 alumnus and former Board of Trustees candidate, Vincent Tedesco, sits outside of Beaver Stadium in a lawn chair. Gripped tightly in his hands is a cardboard cut-out of a young Joe Paterno. By his feet rests a copy of “A Test of Faith and Courage: Patton’s Raiders in WWII.”

A camoflauged Penn State ROTC hat rests upon his grey head, shielding his determined eyes from a blaring State College sunshine, but not shielding his undying disapproval of President Erickson’s decision to remove the Joe Paterno statue from his face.

Watch Onward State’s complete interview with the alumnus and former #PSUBoT candidate, Mr. Vincent Tedesco here:
