Statement from Penn State's acting AD

11/9/2011

Penn State's acting athletic director Mark Sherburne issued the following statement Wednesday afternoon about the Jerry Sandusky scandal that has embroiled the program and the university.

It reads:

The Penn State athletics family is devastated by the details in the Grand Jury presentment. Our hearts go out to the children involved and their families.

Every day we are entrusted with the lives of young people, and we do not -- nor have we ever -- taken that trust lightly. We are outraged that a valued trust has been broken. We can promise you that we are doing everything in our power to restore that broken trust. Everyone within athletics -- coaches, administrators, staff and student-athletes -- are committed to this pledge.

Some strong words from Sherburne, who will be guiding Penn State through some difficult days ahead.
