Minnesota Football: P.J. Fleck Commemorates 50th Anniversary of Bruce Smith’s Death

P.J. Fleck remembers Bruce Smith and other American heroes in thoughtful video.

Bruce Smith

Pretty awesome considering PJ must have planned this out well before today. This story has already been picked up by the Star Tribune. The Strib’s blog post notes Smith’s Heisman trophy speech days after Pearl Harbor, and his Naval service. Both of which certainly played into what Fleck says to the Gophers in this video.

To read more about Bruce Smith holler at a #TBT written about him from a couple years ago.
