On a Saturday in September, with less then two minutes remaining in the game against rival Ohio State, 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. Given only a 3% chance of ever walking again, Adam had very different ideas and today he not only walks, but 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, Adam 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, Adam chose to play for Penn State and Coach Paterno.

Though, playing football is no longer in Adam\'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 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 has also started his own foundation named the Adam Taliaferro Foundation that provides financial assistance to individuals affected by spinal cord injuries. Through his foundation, Adam continues to provide hope for so many people who feel that there is no reason to hope at all.
