VIDEO: Ex-players speak at Joe Paterno memorial

Posted by Adam Jacobi

"A Memorial For Joe," the public memorial service for former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno, was held Thursday afternoon, and it featured several speakers: ex-players from every decade that Paterno was a head coach, a member of the Paterno Fellowship academic program, Nike CEO Phil Knight (who had the most caustic remarks of the proceedings), and son Jay Paterno.

Here are samples of the speeches given by former players Kenny Jackson, Todd Blackledge, and Charlie Pittman at the often emotional service.
