I admit that I'm not much of a sports person. I'm definitely not a football person. But when I hear about the accomplishments of young athletes in our area, I'm excited and proud! Here's another great story.

Ezekiel Ott from Caledonia and Christophor Bain from Grand Meadow have been chosen to play in the all-star football game in Minneapolis. Ott as a senior defensive lineman, and Bain as a senior running back. Coach Gary Sloan from Grand Meadow will be one of the coaches on hand.

Led by the Minnesota Football Coaches Association, the Minnesota Football Showcase will be held December 3 at U S Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and feature a youth football clinic, the Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders, autograph session with Vikings legends and, of course, the all-star game. Tickets are available on the Vikings website.

Congratulations to Christophor Bain and Ezekiel Ott! Your stars are shining brightly!
