Penn St players vow to stick together post-scandal
Penn State players vow to stick by Nittany Lion program following NCAA sanctions
By The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) About 30 Penn State football players say they're staying put despite devastating sanctions levied by the NCAA.

Although convicted former assistant Jerry Sandusky wasn't mentioned by name, senior linebacker Michael Mauti said Wednesday the program would not be torn down by "one man." A scathing investigative report found former coach Joe Paterno helped cover up a child sex abuse scandal.

Mauti says "no sanction, no politician" will take away Penn State's accomplishments.

Senior fullback Michael Zordich calls the players "true Penn Staters" who will stick out the sanctions rather than take the option of transferring to another school.

Zordich calls on the college community to rally around the team, saying "we need you just as much as you need us."
