While the work stoppage has been a headache for football fans over the last several months, some good news for Vikings fans regarding headaches emerged this week while WR Percy Harvin visited his hometown in Virginia to host a free football camp for youngsters.

Harvin, who has been bothered by migraines since he was a youngster, told Ed Miller of the Virginian-Pilot that he hasn’t had one of his debilitating migraines in 5 to 6 months and that “This is the best I’ve felt, probably, since I’ve been in kindergarten.”

In his report, Miller says Harvin was reluctant to go into detail regarding his medical condition, but the 2009 rookie of the year expressed optimism that perhaps he’s found a way to manage the issue.

“I met a couple of doctors,” Harvin said. “There were a couple of things they found in my neck that I won’t get into – some things they found and fixed, along with diet and the rest of the things that can cause them.

“It’s been great, and knock on wood, it’ll continue.”

Miller’s report is worth a read as he details the camp Harvin is helping to host; it’s free of charge to participants. Harvin also said “My explosion is to a whole ‘nother level. My speed has gotten back to top-notch level, so I’m feeling great and really anticipating the season.”
