To the editor:
I enjoyed Sam Herder’s piece on the behind-the-scenes team at NDSU and would like to relate a story about Ryan Perreault. I write occasional sports stories for The Associated Press, but often times are not able to provide added depth with the demands for daily news stories. I called Ryan last month to get background for a story on Bison defensive lineman Brian Schaetz, and Ryan took the initiative to interview offensive coordinator Tim Polasek and provide several excellent quotes. Those comments not only filled the gaps in the story, they were instrumental in getting the piece on the national AP sports wire. That is above and beyond.
