Former Viking offensive lineman and Minnesota native Todd Kalis returns to Minnesota, with co-author Dr. Stephen Below, to sign copies of their book Pigskin Dreams: The People, Places, and Events that Forged the Character of the NFL’s Greatest Players. Kalis has invited several former Vikings to stop by and visit including Hall of Famer’s Paul Krause and Randall McDaniel, The Power Trip (KFAN) host Mike Morris, Bob Lurtsema, Rich Gannon and John Randle.
Todd Kalis and Dr. Stephen Below conducted personal interviews with twenty-two Pro Football Hall of Fame Players about their early lives and influences for Pigskin Dreams (foreword by Don Shula). NFL players–including Dick Butkus, Mike Ditka, Franco Harris, Paul Krause, and Howie Long–shared tales of the factors that led them to greatness. The stories are candid reflections of each player’s childhood and the people and events that influenced the development of their character.
