Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson and wide receiver Deon Butler are in Happy Valley, where former Penn State coach Joe Paterno is being remembered following his death on Sunday.
Robinson and Butler played for Paterno, and the Nittany Lions, and have said repeatedly what an impact their time at Penn State and with Paterno meant to their careers and lives. Former Seahawks wide receiver Bobby Engram also played for Paterno at Penn State.
And Robinson and Engram were included in the memories shared Tuesday by Paterno’s son, Jay.
“There’s Slot Left 62Z Post, Bobby Engram’s touchdown against Michigan, we won the game in ’94 out there,” Jay Paterno said.
“There’s a touchdown, Mike Robinson to Derrick Williams, Northwestern in ’05,” he added.
