In the Bleachers with Wheaties: A tribute to Chuck Sundeen


I’ve been the sports writer for 40 years for the Echo Journal weekly newspaper for Pequot Lakes and Pine River.

I had the privilege of knowing Chuck Sundeen during his years of coaching our Pequot Lakes High School football team. Not only was he a good football coach, he loved his players and they loved him. He also got to know and love all the parents and fans who were faithfully on the sidelines of each game.
