Paterno enshrined in College Football Hall of Fame

July 19, 2008

Penn State's Joe Paterno was joined by 16 former standout players and three coaches as they were enshrined into the National Football Foundation's College Hall of Fame.
 
Paterno and the others in the class were honored at Saturday (July 19) night’s Enshrinement Dinner and Show in South Bend, Ind., to highlight Enshrinement Festival activities. The third active coach to be enshrined into the Hall of Fame, Paterno and the other members of the Bowl Subdivision class were inducted last December at a black tie dinner in New York City.
