We're having a hard time with this favorite jersey thing. Plus, our memory has lapsed on exact numbers that players wore. Guess that's what happens when you age. So let's talk about players instead of numbers.
Terry's favorite players would include Curt Warner, D.J. Dozier, John Capelletti, Shane Conlan, Courtney Brown, Todd Blackledge, Kerry Collins, Blair Thomas, Ki-Jana Carter, Larry Johnson, Michael Robinson, Lavar Arrington, Paul Posluzny, Kevin Kelly, and many others that he can't remember at the moment.
Carolyn wasn't involved in Penn State football until 1987. But she would list Kerry Collins, Blair Thomas, Ki-Jana Carter, Courtney Brown, Larry Johnson, Michael Robinson, Lavar Arrington, Paul Posluzny, as well. And also Craig Fayak, Anthony King, David Macklin, Maurice Daniels, Justin King, A.Q. Shipley.
We both agree that Darryl Clark, Sean Lee, and Jared Odrick are on our list for this year's team. Some others might emerge during the season.
Perhaps we should choose Adam Talliaferro. We were at Ohio State when he was injured, attended the prayer meeting at Old Main that week, and celebrated when he ran out on the field after a long and hard recovery. He represents all that is good about Penn State football.
So favorite number? Sorry, there are too many to pick one!
