MI Senator Tom Casperson. (R)-Escanaba.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Senator Tom Casperson says a Senate Resolution honoring Coach Carl “Buck” Nystrom was adopted by the Michigan Senate this week.
Casperson, who sponsored the resolution, said it honors Nystrom, a native and resident of Marquette, for his distinguished accomplishments in athletics, teaching, coaching and community service.
Casperson added that Coach Nystrom is a legend in athletics throughout the state and across the country and the U.P. is proud he is a native son.
Although Nystrom is at an age when many have retired, he continues to participate in multiple summer youth football camps, sponsor blocking clinics for high school players, and serve as a volunteer coach for the Gwinn Modeltowners.
The resolution will be presented at a Tribute to Coach Nystrom at the NMU Football Reunion this weekend in Marquette.
