    Wistrom on HS Coaching Staff

    Turns out the rumors were true.

    Parkview High School football coach Wes Beachler confirmed Monday that former St. Louis Rams defensive end Grant Wistrom will be an assistant coach at Parkview.

    Word first leaked that Wistrom, 30, was planning to coach at Parkview in a Seattle Post Intelligencer story last week, in which Wistrom hinted at his retirement from the NFL and the Seattle Seahawks.

    Chance Wistrom, the Parkview principal, is Grant Wistromís brother.

    Wistrom has played 10 years in the NFL at defensive end, six with the St. Louis Rams, with whom he won a Super Bowl in 1999. In college, Wistrom helped the University of Nebraska to three national championships. He played his high school football at Webb City.

    This was a breaking news story from the Springfield News-Leader at 3:00.

    23. How many states have THREE Wistroms in Springfield? (Hint: Grant's little brother is a pharmecutical rep and is at my hospital every couple of weeks...)

    Ohh, so close Sam. The answer is 35. The only states without a Springfield.....Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota,
    Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

    However, I will bet that Springfield, MO is the ONLY one with 3 Wistroms.
