November 9, 1997 - On this day in history in the NCSHOF, former Wake Forest football star Ricky Proehl of the Chicago Bears hauled in nine passes for 132 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn’t quite enough as the Bears fell at Minnesota to the Vikings, 29-22.  A native of the Bronx, Proehl enjoyed a 17-year career in the NFL. He was enshrined in the NCSHOF in 2011.
