If you didn t read this Sunday s edition of The Dallas Morning News, you missed a great article by Kevin Sherrington on former University of Minnesota fullback Everett VanDuzee. The article highlights Van Duzee s invitation to join The Green Bay Packers football program in 1926. He subsequently passed on the offer and moved to West Texas where he started a career in the oil business.

Everett VanDuzee s son, Ralph, an agent in the Ebby Douglas Avenue Office, is mentioned in the article. He remembers his late father s thoughts and says that he never regretted his decision to not join the Packers. The incoming freshmen fullback after Everett VanDuzee graduated was Bronko Nagurski, who went on to be one of the greatest football players ever.
