Penn St. ex-player who overcame spinal injury now a lawmaker

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) A former Penn State football player who recovered from a spinal cord injury has been sworn in as a New Jersey legislator.

Adam Taliaferro took the oath of office Thursday to fill a vacancy created when Assemblywoman Celeste Riley stepped down from the southern New Jersey post to serve as Cumberland County clerk.

Taliaferro was paralyzed during a Penn State-Ohio State game in 2000 after tackling an opponent. Doctors predicted a small chance of walking again. He recovered in four months.
