My Condolences Detroit
 
I just read about the Lions recent loss of a long time player and friend to their organization. Glenn Presnell died Monday at the age of 99, and I read he played for the Lions back in the 1930s. The game Sunday is just that, a game, and I wish the Lions fans and their team all the best.

Thanks. He was a pretty amazing guy. Great player, could even play kicker.

Thanks. I believe he was the last surviving member of the original Lions.

He was also said to be the second oldest living player left in the NFL. The oldest being 101.

God Bless the pioneer Glenn Presnell and his family...
