(WSCR) In May of 2006, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky appeared on Penn State Public Broadcasting to discuss the charity he founded in 1977, The Second Mile.
As SportsByBrooks reported, during the 15-minute interview on WPSU’s Pennsylvania Inside and Out program Sandusky discusses the many programs employed by the charity, as well as his decision to end a 35-year career at Penn State as a player and coach in 2000.
“We’ve had a very good year fundraising and we continue to grow programs and reach out and touch more and more kids, which is the bottom line and most important thing,” Sandusky said.
Sandusky is now charged with over 50 counts of child sex abuse, with some of the alleged abuse taking place at events sponsored by The Second Mile.
“We reach out and touch, through these nine programs, well over 100,000 children,” Sandusky said in the interview.
