Learn From a 47 Year Veteran NFL Sports Writer

Ever dream of “working in football” or living football as your life?  This is something Rick Gosselin did for almost 5 decades.  He stops by to share his 47 years of “NFL coverage” experience in this week’s episode of The Football History Dude Podcast

In this episode we cover some of these topics:

  • Rick’s origin story into becoming a sportswriter
  • His time in Detroit, New York, and Kansas City
  • His transition into working for The Dallas Morning News
  • His time as being a foremost expert on the NFL’s draft board
  • His passion project: Talk of Fame Sports Network
  • What it’s like to be a Pro Football Hall of Fame voter
  • The process and in-depth discussions for the Senior selection process
  • Much more

You can learn more about Rick below, but I also suggest you check out his Swan Song article and NFL All-Time Draft, both of which are referenced throughout the interview.
