LETTER: Sam McCullum Deserves Recognition
Letter
Great article on Brock Osweiler and players in the NFL (Dec. 25 Beacon: "Land of Oz"). As a long time NFL fan, I noticed one key player missing from your list of Montanans in the NFL: Sam McCullum. He was a 1970 graduate of Flathead High School who played on the Flathead basketball state champion team. He had a great career at Montana State University, then went on to play 10 years in the NFL for the Vikings and Seahawks. He had 274 receptions for more than 4,000 yards and 26 touchdowns. I'm not sure, but he may have more NFL TDs than any other Montanan. I've always wondered why Sam isn't talked about much locally as one of the great athletes to come out of the state, but here's to Sam for being one of the top NFL players to come out of Montana.

Inthemiddle, that’s good to hear Sam was honored.  I’ve been thinking that would be a good thing to do-glad someone already did.  Maybe the Beacon would make up for his omission from the article by doing a feature article on him.

@natashavc @TaraAriano @allyzay Oh no, I've been thinking it's a room for all your types of mustards. Recalibrating my ideas now.
