Minnesota Viking Marcus Sherels Visits Longfellow
- Lynn Nelson, Longfellow 45-15 Choice Elementary School
- Community Involvement, Teamwork
In May, Minnesota Vikings #35 Marcus Sherel visited Longfellow to spend some time with the Longfellow students and our FUTP 60 team. When Marcus arrived at Longfellow he had never played GaGa ball, so our FUTP 60 leaders taught him the game and they played a few games with him. We then had the whole school come down to the gym and Marcus answered questions and shared his story. Our leaders asked question about eating healthy, his workouts, his favorite games, and times in his life when he has had to persevere. through tough times. Not every day students get to meet a NFL player that grew up in their neighborhood like them.
