Twenty years ago, Taliaferro sustained an injury that changed his life while playing football at Penn State University. He broke his neck and at the time doctors weren’t sure if he was ever going to walk again.

Through the great care of physical therapists and doctors, Taliaferro says he looks back now and is “living a good life.”
