It’s not an NFL contest and it won’t be played in an NFL stadium, but there’s a football game in Minneapolis on Saturday and the Vikings have a stake in the action.
The 38th annual Minnesota High School All-Star Game will be played this Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium and a pair of former Vikings will be head coaches for each team. The game’s format pits a “North” team against a “South” team, with the line drawn through the Metro area and former TE Joe Senser leading the North team against former LB Matt Blair’s South squad.
The Vikings are one of many sponsors of the all-star game and will have a presence beyond Blair and Senser. Head coach Leslie Frazier will give a (pre-taped) congratulations message during pregame and other entertainment and in-game elements will be supported by the Vikings.
