In the second episode of Season 2 of "Where I Come From" — a World-Herald podcast — host Dirk Chatelain sits down for an in-depth interview with Will Shields, the former Husker and Pro Football Hall of Famer who started 231 consecutive games for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The podcast, which features extended conversations with Nebraska's most prominent and interesting sports figures, goes beyond the daily soundbites and clichés to offer access you can't get anywhere else. Who are these people and how did they get where they are? What life experiences changed them? What have they learned?
In the episode, Shields discusses growing up in the drug capital of Oklahoma, his love for vocal music, why he picked Tom Osborne over Barry Switzer, learning from Joe Montana and Marcus Allen, why today’s offensive linemen struggle to adapt to the NFL, what Nebraska’s offense is missing and more.
