The IU community coming together today to remember George Taliaferro. Former star Nolan Harrison sums it up nicely.
Just leaving the funeral services for a great man, George Taliaferro. Beautiful service and he has such a beautiful and kind family. He touched so many of our lives. We can all hope that we leave such a strong enduring legacy when our time is at an end. #IUFB #NFLPAFraternity pic.twitter.com/xFNqzmiqhh
