first_img October 02, 2015 Remarks Interstate 84 Westbound, Exit Ramp #30Blooming Grove, PATRANSCRIPT:We are here to pay tribute to a hero. Corporal Bryon Dickson gave his life in the service of the people of Pennsylvania. Like his colleagues – including Alex Douglass here today – in the Pennsylvania State Police, he chose to serve his Commonwealth.And like his colleagues, he did this voluntarily. He did it knowing the risks he was taking for himself. And for his family. And his wife Tiffany. And his two sons – Bryon and Adam. And he paid the ultimate priceSo in dedicating this exit ramp to his memory, we are honoring him for his specific act of selfless heroism. But we are also honoring him for the valiant gesture he made to all of us in volunteering for this duty. For being so willing to serve us.This is a good time to reflect on the generosity of all who choose to serve us as public servants. Our society depends on good citizens like Corporal Dickson. People like Corporal Dickson keep us secure in our homes. They protect our neighborhoods. And they make our highways safer. We could not do the things we do in our daily lives if it weren’t for the good people like Corporal Dickson.From this point on, many people will take this exit and see this sign. Many of them will wonder who Corporal Dickson was and what he did. We need to do what we can to make sure we never forget him. We need to make sure we never forget what he did for us. And we need to make sure we never take for granted the noble and important things his fellow public servants do for us everyday.Thank you once again to Corporal Dickson’s family. And thanks to all the members of our Pennsylvania State Police.### SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Remarks by Governor Wolf at Corporal Bryon Dickson Exit Dedicationlast_img read more

Colts GM raves about Jacoby Brissett: ‘He hasn’t flinched’

first_imgSimply put, he’s made general manager Chris Ballard look wise for not only trading for him in 2017, but for moving forward with him as the starter this season.“Look: Jacoby, he’s the same guy he was since the first day we traded for him,” Ballard told Colts.com in an interview discussing the first quarter of the season. “Somebody asked me a question today in my office about Jacoby and his leadership, and I said, ‘Look, what makes him really special is he’s authentic, he’s real and he’s the same guy every day — and he’s been that way since the day he walked in this building.’ He prepares — he’s always prepared like the starter.” If you’re one of the many who buried the Colts’ season after Andrew Luck’s unexpected retirement, shame on you.Jacoby Brissett has led Indianapolis to a four-way tie in the AFC South at 2-2 and has 10 touchdowns (tied for the league lead with Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson) to just two interceptions.

Pretty good day at the office for @JBrissett12. pic.twitter.com/rDTuuqt0NK— Taylor Tannebaum (@TaylorTannebaum) September 22, 2019Brissett is the only quarterback in the league with multiple touchdown passes in each game. But it’s not his numbers that seem to impress Ballard most — it’s his poise.“I remember saying this during Andrew’s (Luck’s) press conference when he retired that, look, Jacoby won’t flinch,” he said. “And he hasn’t flinched. He’s played really good football — he’s played winning football for us each and every week.”Brissett will have face arguably his toughest challenge of the season thus far in Week 5 as he tries to keep up with Mahomes and the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium.
