INSPIRATION OF THE DAY: TALIAFERRO WALKS ACROSS STAGE TO RECEIVE DIPLOMA

Alright, we here at EDSBS.com often trend on the sarcastic side, but doesn't mean we don't appreciate a feel good story every now and again. On that score, nothing in college football last week topped the story of the former Penn State player, Taliaferro, who was told he would never walk again following a spinal injury suffered against Ohio State, walking across the stage to receive his diploma. Actually, he started walking five months after the injury, which is astounding, but he continues to be an inspiration as he says he has most of his pre injury ability back. He's also a success story in that he went to Penn State for football and when that was taken away, he stayed for the education and now looks to enter law school next year.
