Adam Taliaferro, the former Penn State football player who overcame a serious spinal cord injury that could have paralyzed him, has annouced he will run for a position on the University's Board of Trustees.
He made the annoucement last night on Twitter. "After speaking to people at PSU and the Alumni...I've decided to run for a seat on the Board of Trustees...thanks 4 the support," Taliaferro tweeted.
Taliaferro was seriously injured as a freshman during a game at Ohio State in 2000.
He is now a lawyer and was recently elected to the Gloucester County (N.J.) board of freeholders.
According to various media reports, three of the trustees’ nine alumni seats are up for election this year.
