George Paterno, the brother of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and color analyst for Penn State football, tells the story about his legendary brother.

The second part of the story deals with Joe's career after he joined Rip Engle's staff and his subsequent marriage. All of the people who helped and contributed to his legend are brought into focus for the first time.
