Back of book below:
Dan Radakovich is called the originator of "Ssteel Curtain" Defensive Lines; and Father of Penn State's "Linebacker U."
Jack Ham adds" There is always one more player Rad believes he can make better, whether it is a veteran pro or a kid in high school. They might not like what he tells them and how he tells them, but sooner or later they will be glad they listened to him."
(Jack Ham is the only Penn State football player enshrined in both the COllege Football Hall of Fame and the Pro-Football Hall of Fame. He played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, helping them win four Super Bowls!
My favorite part of the book is from pp. 339-342 wherein Dan tells the story of my father, Milan M. Karlo, asking Dan to help his nephew, Lou Astorino, get into the main branch campus of Penn State in State College. He did.
Lou Astorino went on to win many awards from his Alma Mater, and Dan tells the story how PSU Coach Joe Paterno sent his private jet to pick up cousins Lou and Denny Astorino in his private jet as he had them as the architects for a $17 million dollar project--called the Mildred and Louis Lasch Building, housing the ractice locker room, weight room, training room and equipment room.
Lou and his brother Dennis Astorino, went on to design the Univeristy of Pittsburgh-Steeler's dual use building on the practice facility of Pittsburgh's South Side, and also PNC Baseball Park in Pittsburgh, said to be the most beautiful baseball park in the country!
Lou Astorino received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from Penn State University's Alumni Association and another from the College of Architechture. He was also the commencement speaker at the 2010 Arts and Architecture graduaton ceremonies!
Buy the book. "Bad Rad" is the ultimate story teller!
