Congratulations to Marshall, Minnesota for being named the 2018 Minnesota Football Program of the Year! This spring, we took over the Marshall community to celebrate their football program's accomplishments and present the winning school with the In the Game Award!
Marshall is a tight-knit community and they welcomed us with open arms allowing for an exceptionally enjoyable experience! All of this would not have been possible without the partnership of the Minnesota Vikings, 3M, and Innovative Office Solutions.
Throughout our time there, we hosted a Vikings InSports and helped 300 kids get IN the game. Both Vikings players and local Marshall football players led alongside each other to help these kids get IN the game. Coach Bahlmann, head coach of the Marshall Senior High School football team, said “I think it’s been a great experience for everyone involved. Our players helping out with the young kids, and we had almost 300 young kids here and then the Vikings players have done a great job helping out and pitching in.” We also held a town festival and Vikings autograph signings at local restaurants in Marshall! It was a great day!
Additionally, we were so excited to present the $10,000 check to the Marshall football team to develop and enhance athletic opportunities in their community!
