To the Triplett Family. I was made ware of Mr, Triplett's passing by the NFL's 2018 review of who has past away during the 2018 year from the NFL family. My condolences to your family. My prayer's, thoughts,wishes to your family. As your family reflects upon the memories of his journey, I to went back in time when I read he was on the '49 roster of the Detroit Lions. My father and Mr. Triplett crossed paths that season. Twice. Walked, played, sweated on the same turf under the common goal to play a game. Thank you for my vision of dad through the face and smile of Mr. Triplett. Respectfully, Tom Fritsch. son of Ted Fritsch '42-'50.Green Bay Packers.

Wally is a true hero no matter how you define the term. He broke barriers with class and determination. As a Penn Stater, we are so proud of you and everything you accomplished and sacrificed for in your life. At the beginning of each football season I try to post his story so new Penn Stater's know the significance of "We Are..."
Rest in peace Mr. Triplett. Prayers and condolences to the Triplett family. Thank you for sharing him with us over these many years.
