Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a scandal that began in a place called Happy Valley. But it's not as happy as it once was, as the child-sex-abuse charges against a longtime coach have rocked America and Division 1 college sports.

The shocking stories started to pour out after the November 6, 2011, arrest of Jerry Sandusky, a former coach under the Penn State football legend Joe Paterno. Sandusky had been Paterno's top lieutenant for thirty-two years. He was also the founder of a charity, The Second Mile, that devoted itself to helping disadvantaged youth. The numerous boys in Sandusky's program who have come forward told a grand jury lurid stories of a sexual predator who stalked and abused them.

In Game Over, journalists Bill Moushey and Bob Dvorchak investigate the shocking details of how a culture built around one deified coach with a glorious vision to have “success with honor” failed to act in the best interests of the most vulnerable. Penn State has been consumed in this firestorm that spiraled downward into the worst scandal in the history of college sports.
