NFL Play 60 Day pits Minnesota kids up against their favorite Vikings

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -

Only the best athletes make it to the Super Bowl,  but before you become an all star quarterback, you have to learn to love to play.

Just four days before the Super bowl, thousands of kids from across the Twin Cities metro area got the chance to try their hands at throwing, running and kicking as a part of the NFL's play 60 Day. 

The event gave about 2,500 kids free rein of the Super Bowl experience for the morning, as they learned fun ways to stay active and healthy while learning skills they may use when they get the chance to take the field. 

Kids like, Wiley Rutherford was confident that was in his future.

"It's kind of giving you a challenge to see if you can be a really good quarterback when you get into the NFL," he said.

Joining the kids for the fun were a few Minnesota Vikings players including our Duluth-native C.J. Ham. 

Ham told us he's happy to be out here getting Minnesota kids excited about the sport. 

He says it's great to see because he would have loved something like this when he was a kid.
