On September 23, 2000, Penn State freshman football player Adam Taliaferro's athletic career came to a screeching halt when he tackled an opponent headfirst. They said he would never walk again, but Adam set out to prove them wrong. This account of a young man's journey from hope to despair to hope again is inspiring on so many counts. There is the devotion of Adam's family, his parents and his awestruck little brother; there is the ongoing commitment of the coaches, primarily the legendary Joe Paterno (who contributes a touching foreword); there is the dedication of the numerous doctors, physical therapists, trainers, and rehabilitative nurses who saw Adam through to his recovery; and, of course, there is Adam himself, whose drive and hard work made the miracle possible. On September 1, 2000, Adam led the Penn State Nittany Lions on the field to start a new season. A genuinely inspirational story. Mary Frances Wilkens
