Thomas Morstead, New Orleans Saints punter is going to meet the fourth-grade class at Rossman Elementary School from Detroit Lakes, MN.
Morstead invited the class to attend the Super Bowl Experience, the NFL’s interactive theme park at the Minneapolis Convention Center during Super Bowl week in Minneapolis after the class raised more than $200 for Morstead's foundation.
The Minnesota Vikings will be paying for the trip the class will take via charter bus next Friday.
“I wanted to tell you guys I was totally blown away and inspired and you made my wife cry, it was an awesome gesture you guys did. I wanted to reward that. Myself, along with the Minnesota Vikings, would like to have that whole class come down Minneapolis the week of the Super Bowl and get to do the NFL Experience with me,” Morstead said.
Vikings fans have helped donate more than $200,000 for Morstead’s foundation as a show of sportsmanship after the Vikings defeated the Saints in the NFL playoffs.
