Community Captain

Community Captain

The Minnesota Vikings and Sleep Number have teamed up to recognize five Community Captains each year. The Community Captain is awarded to outstanding varsity high school football student athletes around the state of Minnesota who demonstrate strong leadership on and off the field. A Community Captain excels not only in the sport of football, but also in the classroom and in the community.

Each Community Captain is required to be a member of the varsity football team, have a 3.0 GPA or higher and have a voluntary community service history. If chosen, each winner will receive a custom Vikings game ball, tickets to a Vikings home game, a $1,000 scholarship for continued education and a $1,000 donation to the charitable organization of their choice. Nominees can be submitted on this page below.
