While I was back for the Spring Game I stopped by Stromsburg and interviewed Bert Gissler who played for the Huskers during WW II and had the distinction of playing for three different coaches in three years.
Wow, talk about timing.... how did you decide to find and interview Bert, David? Did you now that he was not long for this world? Great interview as are all of the ones I've read from you in the past. This is what makes this site so special, you keep us focused on all things RED. Thanks again David. Rest in peace Bert.
The interview was in the works for a few months. I was planning on doing it when I was back in February but didn't it done then. I am grateful that I did get it done when I was back for the Spring Game.
