A piece of Ponies Football history will soon be on display at Stillwater Area High School. A leather helmet belonging to Herbert Bieging (Class of 1923) was recently donated to SAHS by his daughter, Marlene Bieging Eder Schrade (Class of 1955).

Herbert is pictured in a 1922 football team photo in the second row, second player on the left. After graduation, he went on to study violin at the University of Berlin. While in Germany, Herbert toured with Marlene Dietrich, the German-American actress and singer.
