A John Madden Memory


Former Husker and Raider quarterback Dave Humm recalled a short but sweet talk by Madden in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

I had the opportunity to meet John Madden when the Raiders were considering the move to Los Angeles that happened in 1982. I was the athletic trainer at Cal State, Dominguez Hills in Carson, CA, and the Raiders were considering the Dominquez campus as a training facility.

John was being shown around by our athletic director, who introduced me to John. It was an honor to be able to say I shook his hand. His contributions to football and broadcasting are in a class of their own.

Years later after I started HuskerMax, I interviewed Dave Humm who was the quarterback at Nebraska from 1972 to 1974 and played for the Raiders when John was the coach. I recorded the interview, and below is a video of Dave talking about a halftime talk by Coach Madden.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. That's me laughing at the end.
