    Vikings QB helps his high school coach win national honor, trip to Super Bowl

    http://www.startribune.com/local/13864741.html
    The NFL's 2007 High School Coach of the Year is being announced today, the selection is from Grand Forks and he was nominated by a Minnesota Viking.

    Mike Berg, who coached at Grand Forks Central for 28 years until retiring in 2006, wins a trip for two to next month's Super Bowl in Arizona, $5,000 for himself and a $10,000 grant for Central's football program.

    Berg was nominated by Vikings quarterback Brooks Bollinger, one of Berg's former players.

    In his nomination essay, Bollinger described Berg as "a great man [who] taught me a lot about believing in yourself and overcoming adversity... [Coach Berg has] impacted thousands of kids' lives."

    In the late 1990s, Bollinger started every game at quarterback for Central since ninth grade...

    It's nice that an NFL superstar...Ok, thats a stretch
    ;D...would take time out of their busy lifestyles to honor somebody who helped them become who they are today.
    If only more people took the time to give back.
