FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Russ Isaacs is synonymous with Snider High School football.

In a 38-year career as a teacher, coach and administrator at Snider, Isaacs himself has become an institution.

On the eve of his induction into the Indiana Football Hall of Fame, 21Alive's Tommy Schoegler sits down with "Ike" in a special edition of Up Close to remember on his career, to praise past players and coaches and reflect on his legacy left at Snider.
