The opening monolauge, by Dean Devore, is chilling. We transcribed it for you:
Fans, as part of our long standing tradition, we recognize the 2012 seniors. A class that embodies what Penn State represents, class, leadership, friendship, pride, and responsibility These young men have endured unprecedented situations and remained faithful to this team and our university. Their display of character and dignity cannot be overstated. This group of men will be known as one of the greatest in Penn State history. Their “One Team” style of complimentary football extends far beyond the field of play, and influences our community at large.
