Goodbye, JoePa

"Students, mourners and those in the community gather around the statue of Joe Paterno, the former Penn State football coach who died earlier in the morning, outside Beaver Stadium on the campus of Penn State on January 22, 2012 in State College, Pennsylvania. Paterno, the winningest coach in major college football, died at 85 due to complications of lung cancer."

I've been in State College, Pa., covering the passing of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno for Getty Images all week.

It has been an emotional week for those grieving in what is known as "Happy Valley" and will continue today with a formal memorial.

I wanted to quickly share a photo from a powerful moment during the week. Here is a short raw video of the night, too.

More to come and more to elaborate on once I'm back in Baltimore.
