LaVar Arrington Wishes He Did More Former star Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington opened up after the second day of testimony in the Jerry Sandusky child abuse case. Arrington was not called to the witness stand, but shared his feelings with the world in a column in the Washington Post. It’s a very honest piece where Arrington admits he wish he had done more to protect one of the victims who took the stand this week:
My preconceived notion was that he was part of Sandusky’s Second Mile foundation, so he must live in a troubled home, and I chalked it up to that. I would just tell him to smile every once in a while or laugh, that it would make him feel better. I guess with everything that I had going on, it certainly wasn’t a priority for me to try to figure him out. I saw him at the 1999 Alamo Bowl game and shared a couple laughs. I left school for the draft and that was that.

He seems to be one of the few voices who has not been afraid to speak about the subject. Today’s column was particularly honest and self reflective. You can really feel Arrington’s pain and sense some level of guilt. This case is hard for even an outsider to stomach so it’s hard to imagine what Arrington must be going through. Multiply that times a million and you may reach the pain of the victims in this mess. That’s how horrible this case is. BeyondU Sports BeyondU Sports - Best College Sports Blog Site
