Penn State's board of trustees this afternoon announced the winners of the most highly contested race for three alumni seats on the board in the school's history.

Adam Taliaferro, a Cherry Hill lawyer and former football player who was injured and made a storybook recovery, was the top vote getter.

Anthony P. Lubrano, a wealthy donor from Glenmoore who waged an expensive advertising campaign, came in second.

The third seat goes to Ryan J. McCombie, a former Navy SEAL captain.

More than 37,500 alumni voted in the election. Winners will take their seats on the 32-member board before July 1.
