I am the 62 y/o great-grandson of JACK BEST beloved 1st coach and pioneer behind NU football / team athletics / ROTC boxing instructor / trainer dating from 1888 to until his death in 1923. I possess many early athletic photographs and newspaper clippings from the JACK BEST football trainer era.
I am attempting to locate both of his 1888 athletic letter sweaters that he proudly wore in many husker team photographs. These family "hand-me-down" heirlooms are thought to be in the hands of family members residing in or near Fresno California. I would like to donate them to the NU Athletic Department if I am successful.
I would like to share any early Husker information with others who desire to build a JACK BEST era and a GEORGE SULLIVAN who exemplify NEBRASKA sports medicine
