About this product
- DescriptionA memorial to one of the greatest coaches in college football history written by the man who knew him better than anyone: his oldest son and coaching protege This biography of Joe Pater by his son Jay is an honest and touching look at the life and legacy of a beloved coaching legend. Jay Pater paints a full picture of his father s life and career as well as documenting that almost ne of the horrific crimes that came to light in 2012 took place at Penn State. Jay Pater clear-headedly confronts the events that happened with cool facts and with passion, demonstrating that this was just one more case of an incent man convicted by the media for a crime in which he had part. Noting that the scandal itself was but a short moment in Joe Pater s life and legacy, the book focuses on Pater s greatness as a father and grandfather, his actions as a miraculous coach to his players, and his skillful dealings with his assistant coaches. Available in paperback for the first time, this updated edition provides readers Jay Pater's perspective on the latest developments at Penn State.
