Maroons hear Rademacher pep talk
October 16, 2012 - Burt Angeli
Menominee brought in a former star to fire up the Maroons for last Saturday’s football game with rival Marinette.
Bill Rademacher, a member of the 1969 Super Bowl champion New York Jets, talked to the team Friday.
This is THE game,” Rademacher told the players. “This is more important than the Super Bowl. I know because I played in both.”
Rademacher made the first tackle on the opening kickoff of the Super Bowl, according to the EagleHerald. He was also head coach at Northern Michigan University and assistant coach at Michigan State.
“They wouldn’t have invited me back if they didn’t think you guys were going to win this game,” he said. “I brag about where I’m from all the time.
“I wasn’t a superstar, but I beat Marinette.”
Menominee, inspired by Rademacher, defeated Marinette 48-26 in the 106th M&M Game.
