Sandusky to be honored

Former Penn State football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky will receive the Outstanding Achievement Award in January from the American Football Coaches Association.
Sandusky coached at Penn State for 32 years after playing for the university. He coached 11 First-Team All-America linebackers, and he has coached in 29 bowl games, according to the AFCA. In his final game for Penn State, he helped coach the Nittany Lions to a 24-0 victory against Texas A&M in the Alamo Bowl.
Sandusky retired from the Nittany Lions after the 1999 season and began working more with The Second Mile, his nonprofit organization. Each year, the statewide organization reaches more than 100,000 disadvantaged children with programming to encourage self-confidence and personal development.
