CAST IN bronze, the Joe Paterno statue is about 7 feet tall and about 1,000 pounds. It stood outside Penn State's football stadium since 2001 until Sunday.
Designed by Angelo DiMaria and built by Yesid Gomez and Wilfer Buitrago.
Inscriptions: "Joseph Vincent Paterno: Educator, Coach, Humanitarian." Next to that is a quote from Paterno: "They ask me what I'd like written about me when I'm gone. I hope they write I made Penn State a better place not just that I was a good football coach."
