‘Great-Granddaddy’ of UNC Athletics dies at age 99


The oldest former UNC athlete — who in the 1950s helped bring New York players to play for former Tar Heel coach Frank McGuire — has died. Bobby Gersten, “The Great-Granddaddy of UNC Athletics” died at UNC Hospitals on Friday, officials said. Gersten, 99, was the oldest person who had played athletics at UNC — in his case basketball and baseball. (CBS 17)
