EAGAN, Minn. – Young Vikings fans can engage in a unique opportunity while distance-learning due to school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Youth are encouraged to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame Facebook page at 11 a.m. (CT) Wednesday to engage in the annual Heart of a Hall of Famer series, powered by Extreme Networks.
This year's featured guest will be former Vikings guard Steve Hutchinson, who was announced on Feb. 1 among the 2020 Hall of Fame inductees. He was in his third year of eligibility.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame will stream the program LIVE on Facebook and will take questions from students throughout the presentation.
Through the Vikings Youth Marketing program, approximately 600 teachers from schools throughout Minnesota and the Dakotas were invited to participate.
