This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to explore the life and career of Wilbur “Pete” Henry, nicknamed “Fats”.Â You may remember Pete from a previous episode.Â He was the All-American tackle that was signed by Ralph Hay and the Canton Bulldogs the same day as the founding of the NFL, but at the time, the news of the signing overshadowed the league founding.Â So strap on your seat belt, and letâ€™s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
