Supporters had a chance to get autographs, chat with the pros and win prizes while the Vikings took on the Falcons, on Sunday.

All of the proceeds are going to the Cherry and Eveleth-Gilbert High School football teams.

Eveleth-Gilbert Head Coach, Derek Malner says, "we've had a lot of community support of recent, and we just continue to build off that and we have momentum going. People believe in our program, what we represent, the life lessons that we're teaching, and then we have the Minnesota Vikings former alumi up here and come out, and show out, and say, 'hey we support the small schools too. its not just about city life but the rural life as well.'"
