NHL's Kalev

  • 2005-05-11
Looking at the May 3-11 edition of The Baltic Times, I read your story about Michael Roos becoming the first Estonian in the NFL.

Actually Michael is the second. The first was Kalev (Chales) Ehin, who played for the San Diego Chargers from 1983-1989, drafted out of Brigham Young University. I met his father on a trip to Estonia in 1985. His father is professor of management emeritus and the former dean of the Gore School of Business at Westminster College of Salt Lake City, who recently (2004) had a book published called "Aftermath." The book describes the terrible effect WWII had on the Estonian people with the deportations, diaspora, occupation and rape of the land.
