If you talk about the Minnesota Vikings' history, you have to talk about Adam Thielen! From Detroit Lakes, MN, goes to Minnesota State Mankato (Go Mavs), worked his way onto the practice squad and in his 3rd season as a Viking he became one of the NFL's best wide receivers!
Adam and his wife Caitlin created "The Thielen Foundation", helping children and school sports all around Minnesota.
I heard of Adam while working up at WE Fest. People from DL were telling me all about this kid that could have a chance to go to the NFL. This was when he was just going to MSU.
Fast-forward to having Adam on Vikings Country show for the first time. His Mom emailed me to send her a recording of the show.
After many interviews and events, Adam asked if I could host a "Thielen Foundation" golf event. Honored to be a small part of the wonderful events & how much the Thielen's give to Minnesota.
