The Jerry Sandusky scandal has affected many in and around the Penn State football program, but former linebacker LaVar Arrington was especially taken aback Monday after he realized he personally knew one of the victims.

Sandusky, a longtime defensive coach at Penn State, is currently on trial for the molestation of several young boys, and in some cases the molestations allegedly occurred in the Penn State locker room.

In a column he penned for the Washington Post, Arrington said he knew "Victim #4" and that he went out of his way to talk with him, say hello to him, ask about school and his life when "Victim #4" was a young man hanging around the Penn State football program. Arrington remarked that the boy always seemed mad and that he chalked it up to a poor home life because the victim was a part of Sandusky's "Second Mile" foundation, which typically catered to youth from troubled backgrounds.
