Red Grange part 7

This is the last part in a series of stories on the NFL legend Red Grange. He was a modest player whose speed and agility combined with size and strength, made him the first player to play football professionally for a large sum of money. His contract with the Chicago Bears was for 3 years and $100,000. After he retired from football he was an assistant coach, an insurance salesman, and a TV-radio broadcaster for 10 years. He is the most pivotal figure in pro football history because of how he entered the league.

My name Ross and I live in Grand Forks, ND. I am married with a dog and a cat. This podcast is a side gig while working full time at a mom and pop grocery store known as Hugo's Family Marketplace. I created this podcast with the help of my older brother Bryce, because I am a BIG fan of the Minnesota Vikings. I can talk pro football for hours if someone engages me.
