Former PSU Football Players criticize Board of Trustees

Posted: Updated:
HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) -

After a handful of former players blasted the Penn State Board of Trustees, even more held a press conference following the meeting that continued to criticize the board, but also shared what many letterman would like to see the university do moving forward.

For starters they would like board members to apologize to the Paterno family. Former players would also like to see the Joe Paterno monument that once stood outside Beaver Stadium restored.

Mostly, the group wants to restore the late coach's legacy by reexamining the Freeh Report and having the board take a look at the Paterno family's report.

For many the issue boils down to the Freeh Report that implicated Joe Paterno in a Sandusky cover-up along with several other high ranking Penn State officials.

"Admit that its incomplete," former player Brian Masella said during the news conference. He added, "I think they need to look at what they have done negatively. They need to communicate with the alumni."

All of this, after a meeting full of fireworks. Letterman took to the mic, urging board members to step done and that they are no longer supported by the Penn State community.

"Penn Staters everywhere, all they want is for this board to seek the truth," Masella said.
