Pete Fierle Blog: Pro Football Hall of Fame

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on August 19, 2011 – 12:55 pm

Pete Fierle is a digital manager with the Pro Football Hall of Fame website. His familiarity with the game’s history is a result of spending two decades working in the Hall’s archives surrounded by the world’s largest collection of pro football information. His many duties include overseeing the Hall’s website as well as the day-to-day operation of the Archives & Information Center.

Yesterday, he wrote a blog surrounding Head Coach Jim Schwartz and the 2011 Detroit Lions visiting the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“Anyone who says today’s NFL players don’t have an appreciation for those who came before them should have witnessed the Detroit Lions visit to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last night. Coach Jim Schwartz secretly arranged for the team to visit the Hall Thursday. The team busses took an hour detour en route to Cleveland for tonight’s preseason game to visit us.”
