As I type this, former Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington is talking about the Jerry Sandusky scandal at 106.7 The Fan DC. Mike Prada of SB Nation DC is transcribing the interview. It sounds like a tough situation for Arrington, but he thinks that if the allegations against Sandusky, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz are true, then they ought to be prosecuted. He said something similar in a blog post this weekend. But here are some excerpts from his radio interview.
If it does comes out that this is true – because I don’t know what’s true or what’s not true – I only hope that whatever is true and whatever comes out to be true is handled in the best way possible …
If I have to measure it out, those children will always outweigh the other.
This may sound obvious to someone who isn’t close to the situation, but Arrington had a close relationship with Sandusky.
When I heard these allegations, it totally took me off court. when i say ‘totally,’ i was moved to tears. I looked at my children. I looked back at all the moments I had at psu and with [Sandusky] and just thinking to myself how hard I worked to please him and how hard I worked to please Joe [Paterno]. how hard we worked to please these guys, and then something like this happened.
