 Adam Taliaferro Biography

On a Saturday in September, with less than two minutes remaining in the game against rival Ohio State, Penn State football star Adam Taliaferro made a routine helmet-to-helmet tackle that would change the course of his life. The Voorhees, New Jersey, native had broken his neck – the same injury suffered by Christopher Reeves. He lay motionless on the field. Taliaferro was given only a three percent chance of ever walking again, but today he not only walks – he walks well.

"Adam is our miracle," says legendary Penn State Coach Joe Paterno. He is the personification of triumph over tragedy, an inspiration to his teammates, his Penn State family, and anyone who hears his story.

Prior to his injury, Taliaferro was an NFL prospect if there ever was one. A cornerback, he was ranked the seventh best high school player in the nation when he graduated as a National Honor Society member. Offered scholarships to numerous schools, he chose to play for Penn State and Coach Paterno.

Though playing football is no longer in Taliaferro's future, his inspirational tale of recovery has been followed in Happy Valley as well as the nation, leading authors Scott Brown and Sam Carchidi to chronicle his remarkable story in their 2001 book Miracle in the Making.

Adam Taliaferro graduated from Penn State, on time, in 2005. In his remaining time at school, he received the Maxwell Football Club's Spirit Award and remained a part of the Penn State football team.

Adam is now an attorney in at Duane Morris. He has also started his own foundation, the Adam Taliaferro Foundation, which provides financial assistance to individuals affected by spinal cord injuries. Through his foundation, Taliaferro continues to provide hope for so many people who feel that there is no reason to hope at all.
