Joe Paterno To Be Inducted Into The Pennsylvania Sports Hall Of Fame

Joe Paterno will be inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame this year, according to Penn State Athletics. The induction will take place on October 24, 2015 at the Valley Forge Casino Forge in King of Prussia, PA.

Alongside Paterno, Penn State legends Chuck Fusina and Matt Bahr will also be inducted. Fusina, who was a Penn State quarterback from 1976 to 1978, ranks sixth in Penn State history in career passing yards with 5,382. He was named an All-American during his senior year, and played in the NFL for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers. Bahr was a kicker from 1976 to 1978 at Penn State. Bahr played in the NFL for 17 years, the longest time that any Penn Stater has ever played in the league (he shares the record with Kerry Collins).

Paterno’s induction marks another milestone for the former head coach’s legacy. In January of this year, Paterno’s 409 wins were restored, ending the NCAA sanctions on Penn State.
