"It's a tough thing to talk about. For him to come out was very, very difficult," Rich Mauti said. "There are a lot of people out there who have it and you would never know. There are a lot of people suffering with it, so he's going to have a tremendous impact."
"It's for the kids that have to go out there on Saturday," said Mauti, who played under Joe Paterno from 1974-1976 and went on to play in the NFL. "It's a show of support for that. It's not going to be banners and flags and bands. It's going to be the Penn State Way. It's going to be our presence. Hopefully, we get enough guys there that will mean something."
